Give My Head Peace actor Tim McGarry has said the show will go on without beloved former co-star BJ Hogg, who died in April.

The comedian claimed that BJ, famous for playing Big Mervyn in the popular sitcom, would have wanted it to return to television.

"BJ played a vital role in the success of the show and we will definitely go on without him, but he'll always be part of our team and will be fondly remembered by everybody associated with it," the 56-year-old added.
