Viewers urge BBC to axe Mrs Brown's Boys

Furious license fee payers have called for the BBC to axe Mrs Brown's Boys amid the revelation some of its stars are part of a tax avoidance scheme.

The explosive Paradise Papers revealed yesterday that three stars of the hit sitcom allegedly piled some £2million into an offshore fund in Mauritius.

Actors Paddy Houlihan, Fiona O'Carroll and Martin Delany, have all been named as members of the scheme.

In light of the allegations, taxpayers took to social media to demand the BBC scrap the comedy - shortly after its makers celebrated their BAFTA success on Twitter.
