Miranda Does Christmas. Miranda Hart.

Miranda Hart will host a one-off BBC One festive special.

Miranda's Games With Showbiz Names is described as an entertainment show format "full of merriment and mayhem".

The show is based on the Celebrity Game Face format, which has been a hit in America.

Producers explain: "Three celebrity couples join her from the comfort of their own homes to compete in a series of riotous Christmas games. An expert in the art of homemade mischief, Miranda will lead the celebrity players through a host of outrageous challenges, bringing out their silly sides and competitive spirit for a Christmas games night like no other."

The one-off half-hour special will be broadcast as part of BBC One's festive schedule.

It follows similar party game formats Guessable and Comedy Game Night, both made for Comedy Central and broadcast during the autumn.

In 2017, Hart hosted the festive Channel 4 chat and entertainment special Miranda Does Christmas, made by her own King Bert Productions. The new programme is being produced by Monkey.

Hart's show is one of a number of new specials the BBC has revealed today. See more of BBC's Christmas comedy highlights 2020
