Blankety Blank – Christmas – 1987

Staying with the Christmas telly for now, we look back at a festive edition of Blankety Blank hosted by the late, great Les Dawson.  By now Dawson had been hosting the show for three years and the viewer could be in no doubt that this show was made for him.

In a special festive edition the set is all decorated in festive style, the celebrities dress as panto characters and Les also gets in on the act, dressing in costume.  The prizes are just a little better for Christmas with a holiday up for grabs, but it’s still good fun.


The game takes it’s usual format two contestants trying to match answers with as many celebrities as possible in order to go through to the Supermatch to win some of those great prizes.  In this edition the celebrities enter the studio in Panto costume to be introduced By Les dawson.
