Blankety Blank is coming back for a one-off Christmas special on BBC One this year, with Bradley Walsh set to host the iconic gameshow's festive edition. (If that doesn't ease the sad news of Bradley's Doctor Who departure, we're not sure what will.)

Christmas Day telly is almost as important as the food and drink of the day, so it pleases us greatly to see Bradley fronting the classic series with the glitz, glamour, and silliness of the original. The microphone wand is back, too.

Our first look at the special promises innuendo aplenty, as six celebrity guests try their best to fill in the missing BLANKS in a bid to win prizes for a number of lucky contestants. The jammy BLANKS.

Joining Bradley for the Christmas Day fun will be comedian Jimmy Carr, McFly's Danny Jones, former Bake Off co-host Sue Perkins, boxer and I'm a Celeb rogue Amir Khan, Silent Witness' Emilia Fox, and presenter Anita Rani.

As well as a Blankety Blank comeback (putting aside ITV's 2016 version for now), the BBC has packed its Christmas schedule with all the entertainment you could ever want, with everything from Strictly Come Dancing to Mary Berry.

We've compiled a run-down of the Beeb's festive listings here.

The Blankety Blank Christmas special will air on Christmas Day at 7pm on BBC One.
