The festive show, to be broadcast on BBC One, sees Tate’s acid-tongued Nan character meet the Ghosts of Christmas past, present and future when her insults catch up with her. Her dead husband also pays an unexpected visit, in the comic re-telling of festive tale A Christmas Carol. The question is, is it too late for Nan to swap the Scrooge-like misery for some seasonal goodwill?
The Christmas special sees Gavin & Stacey star Mathew Horne return as Nan’s grandson Jamie, and features appearances from special guests, including Ben Miller and Only Fools and Horses actor Roger Lloyd Pack.
It is being recorded on Sunday 22nd November and should be one of this years Comedy Highlights.
