After seven years in the spotlight together, Francis Brennan has opened up why his brother John won’t be returning to At Your Service after this series.
The hotelier revealed his sibling, who he owns and manages the Park Hotel in Kenmare with, found being in the public eye too “intrusive”.
“One of the reasons John gave up the TV show is because he doesn’t like being noticed all the time, he finds it very intrusive,” said Francis.

“The day he decided never to do it ever again, he was coming back from Dublin (two Christmases ago) and his wife wanted five-inch white candles for something she was doing for Christmas.”
“She said, ‘Pull in there to Homestore & More, in Cork’.
“They stopped parked the car, he opened the door to get out and she said, ‘Oh no’ — because if he went, it takes a half an hour, but if she goes it takes seven minutes,” Francis explained to the Irish Examiner.
“That was the very second he said: ‘Never again, because it’s impinging now on my family’,” he added.
