THE BBC TO DOMINATE CHRISTMAS VIEWING WITH RETURNING FAVOURITES

The BBC is to dominate Christmas this year with returning favourites including Gavin & Stacey, Outnumbered, Doctor Who and Wallace & Gromit. Plus the annual Strictly Come Dancing and Mrs Brown's Boys specials.



GAVIN & STACEY CHRISTMAS SPECIAL

James Corden and Ruth Jones say: "Some news… It’s official!!! We have finished writing the last ever episode of Gavin and Stacey. See you on Christmas Day, BBC One. Love Ruth and James"



OUTNUMBERED CHRISTMAS SPECIAL

The stars of the original much-loved series are returning for the special including Hugh Dennis as dad Pete, Claire Skinner as mum Sue, Tyger Drew-Honey as eldest son Jake, Daniel Roche as the middle child Ben, and Ramona Marquez as the daughter, Karen.


In a moment of adversity, Sue and Pete gather all their offspring (including one grandchild) to try and celebrate a traditional family Christmas. But fate, neighbours, hyenas and bus replacement services get in their way.



DOCTOR WHO: JOY TO THE WORLD

Bridgerton star Nicola Coughlan is set to trade the ballroom for the TARDIS, as she joins the cast of Doctor Who for this year's special opposite The Fifteenth Doctor Ncuti Gatwa. The special is written by Steven Moffat.


WALLACE & GROMIT

Vengeance Most Fowl sees Gromit’s growing concern as Wallace becomes over-dependent on his inventions - which proves justified when Wallace invents a ‘smart gnome’ that seems to develop an evil mind of its own. But who or what could be the cause? As events begin to spiral out of control, it’s up to Gromit to put aside his qualms and battle sinister forces, or Wallace may never be able to invent again!



STRICTLY COME DANCING CHRISTMAS SPECIAL

Strictly Come Dancing returns to the ballroom for a Christmas special bringing festive fun, frolics and fab-u-lous dancing for all the family to enjoy on Christmas Day. Join Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman as six stars take to the floor in a bid to be crowned Christmas Champion 2024.


DEATH IN PARADISE CHRISTMAS SPECIAL

Making his debut in a feature-length Christmas special later this year, before a brand-new series in 2025, Don Gilet will play Detective Inspector Mervin Wilson - who arrives on the idyllic island of Saint Marie from London, and isn’t overly pleased with his new surroundings…



MRS BROWN'S BOYS CHRISTMAS SPECIAL

The BBC's head of comedy, Jon Petrie, said (via British Comedy Guide): "Brendan has created an iconic comedy character in Agnes Brown. Mrs. Brown's Boys is a BAFTA-winning comedy show and one of the BBC's most-watched comedies ever... I'm proud to have it in the BBC Comedy stable."
