The nights are drawing in and the festive lights are twinkling as we prepare to settle down and watch our favourite soaps, family films and Christmas specials this season.

Not least of which includes the holiday edition of Alan Carr’s Chatty Man, which promises an impressive line-up of celebrity guests, including Rogue One’s Mads Mikkelsen, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn and Riz Ahmed.

Fresh from the I’m A Celebrity jungle, Scarlett Moffatt has also been confirmed for an appearance, alongside Gary Barlow, Dannii Minogue and Martin Kemp who have joined forces on new BBC One show Let It Shine.

Actor Tom Hardy will also squeeze on to the sofa, with Olympic diver Tom Daley and Gogglebox’s Chris Steed and Stephen Webb, who will be on the telly instead of watching it for a change.

We best hope that Alan Carr’s drinks globe is fully stocked, as Emile Sandé and Robbie Williams will also be dropping in for a chinwag and perhaps some performances to put us all in the party spirit.

“Fantastic!! It’s great to be back!” the TV host tweeted along with the Christmas special line-up.

We couldn’t agree more!
