Agents J and K (AKA Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones) might have saved the world from multiple alien invasions in the Men In Black trilogy, but they’re sci-fi gadgets are no match for Mrs Brown as she knocks MIB III off the top of the Official Video Chart.

Mrs Brown's Boys Live Tour - Good Mourning Mrs Brown has debuted at Number 1 on the Official Video Chart, giving Brendan O'Carroll’s formidable Irish matriarch her second chart topper of the year. The first series of Mrs Brown’s Boys, which is at Number 29 on today’s Official Video Chart, has sold an impressive 1.4 million copies since it was released last October.

Michael Mcintyre’s latest live offering, Showtime, is this week’s second highest new entry, debuting at Number 2, while Men In Black III falls two places to Number 3. Disney’s new Christmas film, Santa Paws 2: The Santa Pups enter the chart at Number 4, while Mrs Brown’s Boys Series 2 (Number 5) completes this week’s Top 5.

The Rollercoaster Tour by Liverpudlian comic John Bishop is at Number 6 while Glaswegian funny man Kevin Bridges’ live show The Story Continues is new in at Number 8. The new entries are completed by Sarah Millican’s latest offering Thoroughly Modern (Number 16).
