Further details

We join Lee and Lucy live from their festively decorated living room, nervously discussing the Ding Dong Merrily on Live Christmas Spectacular - the Christmas variety show they've been strong-armed into organising to raise money for their children's school. But things are rarely plain sailing for our duo, as they soon come to realise, with an animal impersonator as the only confirmed performer, quality acts are worryingly thin on the ground. Who will Lee and Lucy turn to? Surely Toby and uptight wife Anna can't be roped in? With raw egg juggling and some knife throwing (CUT!) for good measure... what could possibly go wrong?
