VIDEO: Watch Moray teen excitedly reveal he is meeting his Mrs Brown’s Boys hero

A Moray teen could be about to fulfil his dream of meeting the star of his favourite television show.

Kai Anderson has been infatuated with Mrs Brown’s Boys since becoming hooked on the hit programme during repeated spells in hospital.

The Keith Grammar School pupil, who has a birth defect in his heart as well as breathing difficulties, has even scripted and staged his own versions of the show with his step-brothers Craig and Robert McKay – raising £700 for charity in the process.

The 13-year-old thought his hopes to meet the creator of the comedy, Brendan O’Carrol, would come true next month after booking tickets to see the stage show in Glasgow.

However, his dreams were shattered when the family were told the Hydro did not organise “meet and greets” for matinee performances.

Kai, who lives in Keith, said: “I tried e-mailing the Hydro and everybody else but nobody answered. Meeting Brendan would really help me out a ton.

“This means a lot to me. When I was in hospital getting stupid cannulas and everything, Brendan and Mrs Brown kept me going. They made me laugh when times were really tough.”

The defiant super-fan has since poured his heart out in an online video pleading for support to meet his hero.

The clip has now been viewed more than 16,000 times and the show’s production company has now pledged to look into ways for Kai to meet Mr O’Carrol.

Kai’s step-father Jock McKay said: “The response has been amazing. Kai and my sons Craig and Robert have written their own sketches and made their own stage backdrops of the kitchen and living room – they’re big fans.

“Kai lives a normal life but when he gets tired he has to go in a wheelchair. It’s hard on him.

“Going to see the show would be special enough for him but actually meeting Brendan would be incredible.”

A spokeswoman for Brendan O’Carrol Productions said: “We have received a lot of messages from people eager to see Kai meet Brendan.

“We’re investigating ways to try and make this happen.”
