There could be bad news on the horizon for Brendan O’Carroll and his Mrs Brown co-stars as the British public have launched an online petition calling on the BBC to axe the hit show Mrs Brown’s boys.

The rather unusual call for the show to be axed comes in a week were three of the show’s stars were painted in a bad light as the recent paradise papers found that they were part of an elite group of celebrities and corporations who allegedly pugged away millions of pounds in an offshore fund to avoid paying taxes.

Although the stars involved Paddy Houlihan, Fiona O’Carroll and Martin Delany have denied the claims they are part of the elaborate tax avoidance scheme, many of the British viewing public have called for the BBC to stand up and put an end to the show in wake of the recent allegations.

It is understood the call comes as many British citizens believe they have been ripped off given that the BBC is funded by taxpayer money.

The fiasco which has seen Apple amongst others named in the papers, has caused outrage in the UK as the papers apparently show evidence that countless celebrities and corporations used the scheme to avoid paying their taxes.

The fiasco has also led to a number of people to take to social media and voice their disgust with many targeting the BBC comedy’s leading stars.

One disgruntled user wrote: “C’mon BBC Mrs Brown’s boys has to go there actions are disgraceful”.

Whilst another wrote: “If they were found guilty of sexual harassment they’d be gone already”

Although the BBC is yet to decide on the show’s future, it could very well face an early end if those involved are found guilty of the alleged moral offences.
