Christmas TV to Watch 2017 | BLOGMAS DAY 11

Christmas is as much about gorging on food and spreading festive cheer as it is about sitting down in front of the telly, watching old comedies and Christmas day specials. 
I don't know when this tradition started, but definitely sometime after I could read. I would sit down with the Radio Time's double issue, highlighting the programs I want to watch this Christmas. I know I'm not the only one who does this! 
So this year I thought, since i'm doing Blogmas, I would share with you those programs I'm excited to watch. I may not have the same viewing taste as you, but I hope I manage to inform you on some tv crackers for you to watch this season. Happy viewing! 

P.S - does anyone else always end up in conflict with a family member about what to watch?? I do - It's inevitable and wouldn't be Christmas without it!!

Saturday 23rd

8:55pm / Miranda - The last ever episode of Miranda! 

BBC 2 
8:30pm / Dad's Army - My Dad is a big fan so I expect he'll want to watch it. I do also find it quite funny (this conflicts with Miranda! I'll have to record one of them).

7:30pm / Ant & Dec...The Missing Crown Jewels - The hilarious weekly clips from Saturday Night Takeaway are put together to make a program. Mary Berry's in it. Enough said!

Channel 4
5:10pm / Gogglesprogs Christmas Special - I've never watched Gogglesprogs! It does sound good though, as children come out with the funniest things!

7:00pm / Stuffed: the Great British Christmas Dinner - Historians and food critics, including Prue Leith, look at traditional Christmas dinner to see how it can survive in our diverse culture as it is now. I love food, so this will be interesting.

Sky 1
12:15am / Michael Buble's Christmas in New York - I'll have to record this since it's on so early. I love a bit of Buble!

Sky Premiere 
5:50pm / Hidden Figures - After Fabio read the book this film is based on, he's been raving about it, saying I should watch the film. Perhaps I will! It's a biographical drama about three black, female Nasa employees who contributed massively to the US Space Program back in the 60s.

Christmas Eve

7:00pm / Mary, Mel and Sue's Big Christmas Thank You - I'm really looking forward to seeing this trio back together. They'll be in the Rhondda Valley, organising a party at a community centre there. Mary will be cooking a roast! 

8:30pm / Michael Mcintyre's Big Christmas Show - I've been following this show and will not miss an episode! 

10:30pm / The Vicar of Dibley, The Christmas Lunch Incident - You all know this classic. I can watch it a million times and it never gets old! Hilarious.

5:45pm / Carols from Kings - It doesn't feel like Christmas until I hear the angel voices of the choir from Kings.

6:40pm / All Star Musicals - Celebrities trying to sing is always a good watch.

Channel 4
5:20pm / The Snowman - Makes me cry every time!

5:55pm / The Snowman and the Snowdog - see above!

8:00pm / Child Genius vs Celebrities Christmas Special - I love a good quiz at Christmas and I think this episode will prove hilarious.

Sky 1
6:00pm / Ratburger - An adaptation of David Walliam's book of the same name. Sheridan Smith will be starring in it, as well as other well-known faces.

Christmas Day

4:45pm / The Highway Rat - An animation narrated by Rob Brydon, based on the book by Julia Donaldson. I reckon it'll be one of those Christmas feel-good animations that'll make me cry!

10:30pm / 300 Years of French and Saunders - The comedy duo come together to look back at their years together, featuring some new comedy sketches. 

5:30pm / The Queen - Most years we have the Queen's annual address on, even if it is just in the background.

Boxing Day

6:30pm / Snow Bears - A documentary is always needed at Christmas. This one is about two polar bear cubs who make a 400-mile treacherous journey. Tear-inducing, yet again.

8:00pm / Little Women - A new series based on the well-known classic.


10:00pm / QI - Fabio and I love a bit of QI, any day of the year!


10:15pm / Bird of a Feather - My Mum used to watch this comedy and I faintly remember watching it with her. It'll be interesting to see if this new episode is still as funny! 

Wednesday 27th

Channel 4

9:00pm / Miranda Does Christmas - Like I said, I find Miranda hilarious. Any show of hers I'll be watching!

What are you most looking forward to watching this Christmas?

And if you're interested...
