Victoria Wood’s 2000 All Star Christmas Show
Another great loss to the world of entertainment this decade, award winning comedienne: Victoria Wood.
This one-off Christmas comedy sketch show special entitled: Victoria Wood With All The Trimmings was first shown in 2000.
Alongside Victoria Wood were her regular co stars and an array of star guests that included: Caroline Aherne, James Bolam, Betty Boothroyd, June Brown, Craig Cash, Roger Cook, Lindsay Duncan, Hannah Gordon, Richard E. Grant, Shobna Gulati, Philip Jackson, Derek Jacobi, Hugh Laurie, Robert Lindsay, Geraldine McEwan, Bob Monkhouse, Roger Moore, Michael Parkinson, Bill Paterson, Billie Piper, Pete Postlethwaite, Alan Rickman, Angela Rippon, Kate Robbins, Ted Robbins, Delia Smith, Kathy Staff, Imelda Staunton, Alan Titchmarsh, Ian Watkins, Honeysuckle Weeks, Penelope Wilton, Anna Wing and Bernard Wrigley.
Victoria Wood said of the cast “I had a great long list of all the people I really liked. I wrote to the first fourteen or so – and they all said yes. So I thought, ‘oh, bloody hell – I’ve got to write it now.”
The show formed the centrepiece of BBC One’s Christmas Day schedules for 2000.
Victoria Wood and guests perform in an array of specially written sketches.
