Linda Robson and Lesley Joseph reprise their roles as Tracey Stubbs and Dorien Green with guest star Les Dennis as Dorien’s new flame Graeme, a cameo from Curtis Walker and Ami Metcalf as Jordan, a young friend of Tracey’s whose lockdown Christmas needs cheering right up.
Tickets are now available to watch the extended episode before anyone else - by joining its virtual audience on Saturday 14th November. The virtual audience will see exclusive messages from the show's stars.
SRO audiences explain: "You’ll see and hear the episode, and we’ll record the sound of your laughter to be part of the audience on the transmitted show. We won’t see you – just hear you. So join our virtual crowd of Birds fans and the stars of the show - we’d love for you to settle down on the sofa with your bubble and enjoy the show with us!"
ITV confirmed the return of the classic comedy earlier this month.
Lesley Joseph said "I'm so excited to be putting Dorien's high heels back on for a Christmas special of Birds. It's been 3 years since viewers last saw us and Dorien's only gone and got herself a new man! We all need a laugh right now and I promise this special will deliver the festive goods!”
Linda Robson said “I'm so happy we have a new Birds adventure. Trace and Dor have been at loggerheads with each other for months, will it be a peaceful Christmas in Essex?! The script for this special is brilliant, I promise we'll have lots of laughs for fans of the show."
