The latest series of this ludicrous but watchable mess of slapstick, cross-dressing, baffled celebs and antediluvian humour concludes. It's generally dependent on the quality of its guests: this week's visitors are Dani Dyer, Paddy McGuinness and Busted - so make of that what you will.

Eek! The cheesy but breezy chatshow continues with a moose loose aboot Mrs Broon's hoose, and that poor wee rodent will likely regret seeking refuge up Grandad's trouser leg. Among the celeb guests watching where they step are Jane McDonald, Emily Atack and Olly Murs.

More baffling audience laughter at nothing in particular as Brendan O'Carroll returns. In fairness, the chatshow version of Mrs Brown is relatively bearable; it's fun to watch the guests - who this week include Teri Hatcher, Anna Friel and Rob Beckett - deal with the constant stream of maniacal double entendre.

The last in the current series of the awkward panto/chat crossover has a guest list that, like the jokes in the script, isn't bursting with contemporary freshness: Ray Mears, Jerry Springer and Boy George are the visitors, with Boy George the gamest because he's brought his mum, Dinah.

Brendan O'Carroll's mammy welcomes more guests for japes and single entendre. Tonight's lucky recipients of Mrs Brown's wit are Marvin and Rochelle Humes and Alan Davies, while Wayne Bridge delivers footballing wisdom. Picture This provide musical relief from the panto fun.

Brendan O'Carroll throws on the cardigan and curlers to welcome TV Dragons Peter Jones and Deborah Meaden into the den. Tonight''s other interviewees are musical collaborators Sting and Shaggy, This Morning chef-turned-Italian Escape artist Gino D'Acampo and Loose Woman Christine Lampard.

Mammy Mia, here we go again. Series two of the chat show spinoff continues, with various game celebs - Freddie Flintoff, Jason Manford, Fatima Whitbread - yielding to the chaotic quizzing of Brendan O'Carroll's matriarch. Pleasingly, the bawdy spotlight is equally focused on the studio audience.

All Round to Mrs Brown's review

A mix of crassness and old-fashioned sweetness.

Ed Power, The Telegraph, 19th May 2018

The blanket critical disdain heaped upon Brendan O'Carroll's Irish matriarch can feel a little lazy. So, to bend over backwards, this format, in which guests subject themselves to Agnes's lewd provocations, is the character's best delivery mechanism. Tonight, Amir Khan, Danny Dyer and Kate Humble pay a visit.
