The stars of hit television comedy Mrs Brown’s Boys hope to have the last laugh on the golf course when they make a welcome return to the Celebrity Cup sponsored by Bulmers this summer.

Just like the popular TV show, the celebrity golf tournament will become a real family affair when creator Brendan O’Carroll is joined by his wife and son, and his Mrs Brown’s Boys co-stars, Jenny O’Carroll and Danny O’Carroll, for the event at the Celtic Manor Resort from 30th June – 1st July.

The O’Carrolls will team up with former boyband singers Ronan Keating, Keith Duffy and Brian McFadden in an Ireland side still looking for a first win in the four nations tournament which also features England, Scotland and Wales.

Brendan O’Carroll is excited to be back at Celtic Manor after previous appearances in 2014 and 2016.

He said: “We play in charity golf events all over the world but this is the best-organised tournament and the warmest welcome we’ve ever had. There’s always great crowds and a brilliant bunch of people to play with and against. I’m really looking forward to another fun event and it will be fantastic to have Jenny teeing up with me and Danny this time.”

The O’Carroll clan will pit their wits against another comedy icon, Rob Brydon, who captains Wales for a sixth time and is joined by TV presenter Gethin Jones in the home side.

Defending champions England will have two of last year’s winning side back in the fold after Dragons’ Den entrepreneur Peter Jones and former Emmerdale actor Kelvin Fletcher confirmed their places in the line-up.

The 2016 Celebrity Cup winning captain, Rory Lawson, will also return to the lush fairways at Celtic Manor and he teams up with fellow former Scotland rugby internationals Thom Evans and Max Evans, who is currently starring in Dancing on Ice.

Thousands of golf fans and celebrity spotters will flock to Celtic Manor to watch the Celebrity Cup from 30th June-1st July. As well as top-notch golfing action and on and off-course banter, there will be live music and food and bar outlets in the tented village.
Visitors can also experience the VIP treatment in Hospitality or at Saturday evening’s glittering Gala Dinner.
