TINY CHRISTMAS CHALLENGE: SANDI TOKSVIG HOSTS CHANNEL 4 COMPETITION

Channel 4 have announced Sandi Toksvig's Tiny Christmas Challenge, a 1x60' special from Yeti Television, following on from More4 series The Great Big Tiny Design Challenge, which aired earlier this year.



The one-off special, presented by Sandi Toksvig, will see two teams of amateur crafters take on the challenge of transforming a miniature alpine cabin into the ultimate Christmas retreat, from detailed decorations to a miniature Christmas feast.



The episode begins with the mini-challenge, where the crafters will be asked to make mini-versions of their own much loved family decorations for the house. The two best makers in the mini-challenge will then become the team captains and take responsibility for the overall design of their room.


Each team member will design and make a different miniature item for the room, including a Christmas tree and a roaring fireplace. The winning miniature crafter will receive a tiny festive trophy and the title of Tiny Christmas Challenge Champion.



World-record holding micro-sculptor Dr Willard Wigan MBE and interior designer Laura Jackson will be on-hand as the judges.


Yeti's Sian Price said: "There’s something magical about Christmas… but the miniature magic created by our exceptionally talented crafters will leave you rubbing your eyes in disbelief! It’s been a true festive treat to work with Sandi and Channel 4 on a miniature show once again. We can’t wait to share this seasonal special with audiences this Christmas!"



Channel 4's Clemency Green said: "I’m thrilled that we’ll be decking the halls with these miniature marvels this Christmas! The team at Yeti have pulled together a gorgeous festive offering and I can’t wait for audiences to be wowed, and hopefully inspired, by the work of these incredibly talented makers."


Sandi Toksvig’s Tiny Christmas Challenge will TX this December on Channel 4 and All4.
