We Have Been Watching Christmas Special

A host of comedians, including The Royle Family's Ricky Tomlinson and Ralf Little, settle down on their sofas to watch Christmas specials of yesteryear

Comedians and comic actors settle down on their sofas to watch Christmas specials of yesteryear,
in the first of a new series (there’s more to come in January).

It’s all obviously a bit Gogglebox-y as we eavesdrop on the likes of Miranda’s Sally Phillips and Sarah Hadland, or The Royle Family’s Ricky Tomlinson and Ralf Little – and things get really weird when they start watching themselves.

But you could heat a room with the affection stars like Sarah Solemani and Russell Tovey, or Robert Llewellyn and Craig Charles have for each other.

And it helps that they’re watching real yuletide classics – roll on ’Allo ’Allo, Eric and Ernie, Mr Bean, The Fast Show and tons more. Sheer joy.
