Inside the Christmas Factory

Gregg Wallace and Cherry Healey return for a festive special of Inside the factory, and reveal what goes into the creation of the nation’s favourite Christmas products

After being amazed by cereal, folding bicycles, sweets, trainers and baked beans, Gregg Wallace and Cherry Healey return for a festive special of the show that reveals what goes into the creation of the nation’s favourite products.

Gregg rolls up his sleeves at Britain’s biggest cake factory to have a go at making mince pies, a mind-bogglingly rapid process which produces 2,000 pies every minute – and creates mayhem on the production line!

Meanwhile, Cherry looks into what goes into making thousands of miles of tinsel and historian Ruth Goodman investigates the Christmas cracker.
