People furious as BBC releases Christmas TV schedule

People furious as BBC releases Christmas TV schedule

The BBC has shared its Christmas line-up but one show has failed to impress

Viewers have been left less than impressed after spotting one particular TV show lurking in the BBC Christmas line up.

With the big day less than a month away, the BBC has given viewers a glimpse of what they can watch while working their way through a massive tub of Celebrations.

This year, viewers will be treated to a brand new episode of Doctor Who (complete with a new Doctor played by Ncuti Gatwa), the final ever episode of the sitcom Ghosts, legendary broadcaster David Attenborough is back with new documentary Attenborough and the Giant Sea Monster and Nigella Lawson is set to show us how they do Christmas in Amsterdam.

Talking about this year’s schedule, Charlotte Moore, BBC Chief Content Officer said: “This year’s Christmas line-up on the BBC is an extravaganza of must watch shows!

“Join us as we welcome a brand new Doctor and wave goodbye to our beloved sitcom Ghosts. Alongside a spectacular range of entertainment, drama, comedy and factual programming across the festive fortnight.

“It’s essential viewing for everyone as we bring friends and families together across the UK.”

However, eagle-eyed telly-addicts have spotted one TV show in the line up that they’re not so happy about.

Mrs Brown's Boys is back on our screens at Christmas.

Yes, it's the ever divisive Mrs Brown's Boys.

The comedy show, created by and starring Brendan O'Carroll, launched back in 2011 and ran for three series, and returned for a four mini series in September this year.

Alongside that, the show returns each year for a Christmas special and it also spawned a feature film, titled Mrs Brown’s Boys D’Movie in 2014.

This year, the BBC has revealed there will be two episodes of the long-running sitcom, with their guide sharing: “Mrs Brown’s Boys is back with two episodes as Mammy tries to enjoy a nice, peaceful Christmas before the whole gang start the New Year by attempting a tough new health and fitness regime.”

Viewers have called for Mrs Brown's Boys to be cancelled.

Posting on X, formerly known as Twitter, one person wrote: “Not Mrs Brown's Boys I’VE HAD ENOUGH the most unfunny show ever.”

Another said: “Can someone just end Mrs Brown’s Boys…”

Commenting on the list as a whole, a third person added: “That’s actually [a] really decent [line up] bar Mrs Brown's Boys.”

Someone else wrote: “Why is Mrs Brown’s Boys still on the schedule? Didn’t it stop being funny a while ago?”

This isn't the first time social media users have turned on Mrs Brown's Boys - last March, when the four-part series was announced - there was a similar backlash.
