Actor and presenter Stephen Mangan leads the festive charge as we laugh our way along the journey back down memory lane and through our classic Christmas memories.

From The Morecambe And Wise Show to Mrs. Brown's Boys... well, Goodness Gracious Me, you're in for an Absolutely Fabulous yuletide treat. You're out of The Office and living The Good Life, but with Christmas specials galore you'll still be wanting Extras.

Celebrities and performers offering their own whimsical recollections and insightful comments include actor and author Charlie Higson, comic writing legend Barry Cryer, national treasure Lionel Blair, actress Susie Blake, actor and singer Patrick Baladi, writer and presenter Emma Kennedy, and critic and broadcaster Andrew Collins.
