It's goodbye for Rory and Dino

Mrs Brown's Boys is reportedly in crisis after losing two of its most popular stars.

According to the Daily Star, Gary Hollywood and Damien McKiernan, who play boyfriends Dino and Rory, are exiting the BBC sitcom following an alleged row over pay.

The pair were furious when they discovered were earning less than their co-stars.

However, when they brought the issue up with the show's bosses, Gary was told he would have a reduced role in this year’s festive shows, prompting him to quit.

Damien has since been told that he has also been axed from the show.

Confused and hurt

An insider told the Star: “Gary and Damien were confused and hurt when they realised they were getting paid less than the others.

"When they raised the issue it did not go down very well.

“Gary was later told he would only be appearing in one of this year’s Christmas specials. That was the last straw, so he told them he was quitting.

“Co-stars including Jennifer Gibney tried to convince him to stay, but his mind is made up.”

The insider added: “It was even worse news for Damien. He was simply told he is being written out."

The news comes after Mrs Brown's Boys was given the go-ahead to film its Christmas special.
