“He was the most adorable man and actually, we dedicated the Christmas episode to him, we loved him very much,” Brendan told the Irish Independent.
“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.”
Dennis before his demise, worked with BBC Scotland, where Mrs Brown’s Boys is filmed.

She went on reiterate that the Dennis’s tragic is a reminder that covid19 still lingers in the corner.
“I think you need to remember that the virus is still out there and keep taking all the precautions,” she added.
