From The Sun (not the most reliable newspaper in the world, I know...):
THE BBC is planning a turkey-free Christmas - by bringing back The Royle Family AND The Catherine Tate Show.
(...) Meanwhile, carrot-topped Cath is writing a one-off special of her comedy show - two years after knocking it on the head.
Sadly it won't feature all her catchphrase characters like Lauren the teenager - but who's bovvered?
Instead, it will be a spoof version of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol, with foul-mouthed Nan Taylor playing Scrooge.
She will be visited by the ghosts of Christmas past, present and future.
They will show the potty-mouthed OAP the error of her ways in the hope she'll awake on Christmas morn with a more agreeable turn of phrase.
And a confirmation on Twitter by Mathew Horne:
So I am thrilled to announce I'll be doing a Catherine Tate Show Christmas Special this year! Never thought I'd be doing that again!
It's all Nan. So I'll be getting a battering like the old days!
