The 64-year-old comedian told Metro.co.uk: “I’m happy with Christmas specials. At some stage… they continually hint at some stage of having a full series back. Just having a full series.

“The agreement with the BBC is that when they decide it’s over, it’s over and that suits me fine. I bring it to a close.

“But as long as they want to keep running it on Christmas Day I’m gonna keep doing it on Christmas Day and hopefully get better and better and better.”

Brendan told ITV’s This Morning that he plans his schedule so he can have 26 weeks of the year off.

He said: “We have nine kids on the road, four tutors and five nannies, and we do travel as a family.

“Although we sound very busy we don’t work more than 26 years of the year, and then we take 26 weeks off. If it does’;t fit into the 26 weeks, we’re not doing it.”

Gibney added: “They’re very busy 26 weeks!”
