Alan Carr is to host a festive special for Channel 4 called The Twelve Stars Of Christmas.

The channel explains: "On the nights before Christmas, Alan Carr will turn festive elf as he presents a star-studded quiz - The Twelve Stars Of Christmas - where the audience take home the prizes, if their celebrity rep knows what's what from 2016.

"In each show, playing for one third of the audience, will be three celebrity guests who will take it in turns to choose doors from Alan's giant Advent Calendar. Behind each door will be a famous face armed with a question about the highlights (and lowlights) of the year."

The show will be made by Alan Carr's own production company Travesty Media alongside Magnum Media, the company that makes Duck Quacks Don't Echo.

Earlier this month it was revealed that Carr was also working on a new TV series called Alan Carr's Happy Hour. The format will see the comedian joined by "stars from film, TV and the music industry" for "games, sketches and stunts".
