MRS Brown’s Boys star Brendan O’Carroll has turned his hand to hosting quiz shows after his success in the sitcom world.
He has become one of the BBC’s biggest names and is now presenting his very own quiz show.
What time is For Facts Sake on?
The series continues tonight, November 12, at 9.30pm on BBC One.
The show is expected to run for 6 episodes.
Brendan O’Carroll is back before then with series two of All Round to Mrs Brown’s, his comedy talk show.
In the first series that aired last year, James Blunt sang a song before puckering up for a kiss with Mrs Brown.
What is For Facts Sake?
For Facts Sake is an-all new panel show that will “celebrate ordinary people and their extraordinary facts”, with two teams competing against each other.
The show’s title is a twist on Brendan’s famous “feckin” catchphrase from Mrs Browns Boys.
Each team will be captained by a rotating cast of Mrs Brown’s Boys’ regulars, with the rest of the panel made up of members of the audience.
Speaking about his new gig Brendan said: “I’m really excited to be doing a show where I don’t have to wear a bra! When we did the pilot it was great fun. If we can capture that on the screen we are all in for a good time.”
