Podge and Rodge were huge on TV with a couple of different shows running from 1997 to 2009. They came back with a reboot show from Ballydung Manor in County Ring last year on RTE 2 hosted by Doireann Garrihy.

They had guests which included Erin McGregor, Dan Osbourne (The Only Way Is Essex), Rory Cowan (Mrs Brown’s Boys), Kerry Katona, James Kavanagh, Nadine Coyle, Jorgie Porter (Hollyoaks), Marty Morrisey and many more. They had some sketches and also Bands who played a strange choice of cover songs to close out the show too. The Bands included Le Galaxie, Statelights, Le Boom, Fangclub, Columbia Mills & more.

Some of the old fans liked it and some others… didn’t really seem to get it.

They announced on Twitter over the weekend that RTE would not be bringing back the reboot for a second series.

“Tis true! #PodgeAndRodge Show will not be returning! However it was the craic making our brief inglorious comeback! Thanks to yis all for tuning in, to the crew and of course the mighty @DoireannGarrihy who is always welcome in Ballydung, once she gives us a good months notice!”

We’re sure we’ll see the foul mouthed brothers back on our screens at some stage.
