Micky Flanagan's Christmas
What's a three-bird roast? And why the sudden need for a new sofa? Micky explores our craze for Christmas, finding some strange traditions along the way.
Why do so many people get divorced at Christmas? What exactly is a three-bird roast? And why does everyone panic about getting a new sofa in time? Micky searches his mind for everything he loves and loathes about Christmas. But it's not just those burning questions keeping Micky awake. He wants to find out more about Britain's Christmas craze.
In this cheeky festive special, he visits a tinsel factory in Wales and finds out why people do unspeakable things at their office Christmas parties. He discovers how semi-nudity and New Year resolutions come together in a rather surprising way, shares his take on 2018 and reveals why, for some, Christmas is all about wizards, stone circles and bad sandals. Plus, if you've ever wondered who the world's most inappropriate Father Christmas is, you'll get to meet him as Micky heads to Santa training school.
