You wait all year for a Christmas special of your favourite show, then fall into an eggnog/trifle/turkey-induced coma the second it comes on.

Gold has the answer, and is rebranding itself as Christmas Gold to deliver an entire month of seasonal faves.

Usual but very welcome suspects include Mrs Brown’s Boys and The Royle Family, but other gems include Citizen Khan, The Good Life, One Foot in the Grave, The Two Ronnies, The Vicar of Dibley and Last of the Summer Wine.

The standout this evening must be part one of the Only Fools and Horses Christmas trilogy from 1996. Yes, the caped crusaders one.
