Brendan O’Carroll pays tribute to Mrs Brown’s Boys crew member who died from Covid-19

Brendan O’Carroll has paid tribute to Mrs Brown’s Boys crew member Dennis Knotts, who died from Covid-19 earlier this month.

The props master worked with BBC Scotland, and his death has left the cast and crew of the popular Irish sit-com devastated.

Speaking to The Irish Independent, Brendan said: “He was the most adorable man and actually, we dedicated the Christmas episode to him, we loved him very much.”

“He’s been on every show that we have done with the BBC and that’s ten years now. He was the props master on every one of them; he was lovely.”

“We lost one of the family. There were people who had worked with Dennis for 40 years and they are just devastated; they can’t believe it.”

Brendan’s wife and co-star Jenny Gibney said they were in the middle of recording one of two Christmas specials when they got the tragic news that Dennis had died.

She said: “We were in the middle of recording that episode when we got word that he had passed. We did the show for Dennis; that’s how we all got through it. We said, ‘let’s do this one for Dennis.’ And we did. I think you need to remember that the virus is still out there and keep taking all the precautions.”
