Reality TV star Caitlyn Jenner is such a fan of Mrs Brown’s Boys that she managed to land a guest appearance on the show.
Glasgow-born actor Gary Hollywood, who plays hairdresser Dino Doyle in the show, said: “Who knew Caitlyn Jenner was desperate to be part of Mrs Brown’s family when she has such a famous one of her own?
“Nobody knew she was such a fan until Caitlyn met some of the cast at the National Television Awards when the show won best comedy.
“She told Brendan O’Carroll and his wife Jenny she loved the show. Of course she was invited on to All Round To Mrs Brown’s, which we were busy filming.
“Caitlyn was supposed to be flying to LA, but postponed her trip so she could be a guest. She flew into Glasgow where we film the show, and she had a ball.”
The show will be televised later this year but Caitlyn couldn’t wait to share a picture with her millions of Instagram followers of herself sitting at Mrs Brown’s kitchen table.
Gary said: “She’s got to be the biggest star we’ve had on the show so far and, despite her own glamorous life in LA, she is one of the most down-to-earth and funniest guests ever.
“You can only imagine the banter between her and Mrs Brown. There’s certainly no holds barred, as you’d expect.
“After the show, Caitlyn made sure she got photographs with all of us and, let’s face it, it’s the closest I’m ever going to get to a Kardashian!”
Since 2007, former Olympic athlete Caitlyn has appeared on reality TV series Keeping Up With The Kardashians with her third wife Kris Jenner, their daughters Kendall and Kylie, and Kris’s other children, Kourtney, Kim, Khloé and Rob Kardashian.
Gary is looking forward to Mrs Brown’s Boys D’Live Show – The Musical at the SEC in Glasgow in July, and Edinburgh Playhouse.
He added: “We’re touring the world over the next couple of years, but it’s always the best feeling to come home to Scotland.”
