The storyline in which Rory Cowan will be written out of Mrs Brown’s Boys have reportedly been decided .
The actor announced in July that he was leaving the show, stating that he was unhappy.
Creator and star Brendan O’Carroll was then tasked with coming up with a storyline for Rory’s departure.
Rory plays a major character in the show, Mrs Brown’s son Rory, which means that writing the character out completely could be difficult.
Instead Brendan plans to recast the actor with a very unusual.
“Brendan had been sweating about how to replace Rory as he wrote the Christmas special at his home in Florida,” an insider told the Sun.
“He was really keen to keep the same camp character but played by a new actor.
“A plastic surgery storyline where Rory ends up with a new face was the perfect answer.”
Rory did not want to take part in the Christmas special which means that the face of his character will be bandaged up due to the surgery before the new face is unveiled.
It has not yet been revealed who will take over the part of the camp hairdresser.
Speaking about being replaced on the show, Rory admitted that he didn’t mind a new actor taking over.
He said: “I’m sure the fans will be happy with the decision, I don’t see why he wouldn’t be.
“We can all be replaced, the only one who is irreplaceable is Mrs Brown. I’m gone now so whoever they get, or whatever storylines they have in the future that’s not my business.”
