Big Narstie's Christmas Dinner

Big Narstie is hosting a big Christmas dinner.


Following YouTube antics and the odd presenting gig, the grime MC landed his own Channel 4 series earlier this year. Having been well received, he returns for a special, once again alongside comic Mo Gilligan. Expect starry cameos, although hopefully no further screen time for his buddy Ed Sheeran.
