The BBC has officially revealed initial details of its key Christmas comedy line-up.
Broadcast dates have not yet been announced, however programme titles and synopsis have today been released.
Sir David Jason heads the cast as Granville, who some years back inherited the shop from his beloved but miserly Uncle Arkwright. He now runs it with his son Leroy, a cheerful, good-looking lad with more female admirers than Granville ever had.
John Bishop, fresh from hosting The Royal Variety Performance, presents a BBC stand-up special from the West End's Lyceum Theatre.
Hosting and curating a massive Christmas Show full of his very own favourite comics and artists, 'Bish' will be treating London and the rest of the UK to a laugh-fest packed full of good cheer.
Following her appearance on Children In Need, Catherine Tate returns with her well-loved character Nan for a full-length studio sitcom special.
Whilst Jamie, Nan's grandson (Mathew Horne), is away in Africa doing voluntary work, a young girl, Alice (Ami Metcalf) has been allocated to keep her company and cheer her up. Unfortunately, Nan, in her usual style, causes mayhem.
Expected on Christmas Day, the show comes from the BAFTA-nominated team behind 2012's Mr Stink. It tells the story of Ben and his grandma (who was once an international jewel thief) as together they go on a wild adventure to complete the one heist she never quite managed in her criminal heyday.
Two new specials - one for Christmas, one for New Year. In the first, no-one knows what Mrs Brown's grandson Bono wants for a present. He's already posted his letter off to Santa, so how can she find out in time?
In the second, Agnes is trying to make sure Bono isn't sent to the infamous local primary school. At least she's got her New Year's Eve party to look forward to - until her guests start dropping like flies.
A new special for the Scottish character. Facing hard times that are harder than ever, Rab turns to a life of crime to help make ends meet.

A special, which will follow the end of the currently broadcasting series. All the family, including Sarah's parents, gather for Christmas.
