Nobody puts Mrs Brown in the corner

IIs there any escaping Mrs Brown's Boys? Or, indeed, Mrs Brown's Girl? That's what occurred to me as I flicked over to Strictly Come Dancing last Sunday night. Jennifer Gibney, sitcom star and wife of Brendan O'Carroll, is one of the contestants on the hit BBC show. Last Sunday she wowed the audience and judges, proving she's just as handy on the dancefloor as she is in dealing with the spiky wit of Mrs Brown. After a week that saw Michael Flatley launch his new London show in a blaze of publicity, I didn't think anyone could steal his thunder. But Jennifer hoofed it like a professional on Strictly's opening night and is already hotly-tipped to make it to the final. Is there no end to the talent of Mrs Brown's boys and girls? Well done Jennifer. Even at 50 you're putting the younger types in the corner.
