The big day is almost upon us and in a last-ditch bid to claw back Christmas from the brink of disaster the nation's favourite publican, philosopher, common sense commando, scholar, sage and bald bloke is hosting the ultimate public house party. Serving up a Chrimbo cocktail... no, make that a pint, (rules are rules) of festive cheer, seasonal games and celebrity guests.
You won't be properly warmed up for any yuletide celebrations until you've experienced this cracker of a lock-in with The Pub Landlord in his majestic pub, The Reindeer's Head. Backed by his house band The Remoans, the Guv leads some seasonal sing-a-longs including, "You Can't Even Say Christmas Any More," 'chats' to some of his celebrity guest audience, invites members of the public to win some early Christmas presents in two studio games "Wrong Answer" (where the right answer is, of course... the wrong answer) and "Robot Reindeer Rodeo " (requiring one lucky celebrity guest to climb on the back of the aptly nicknamed, Buckarudolph)... while also importantly reminding us that, after all, it was the British who "invented Christmas".
