Screenshot 2019-12-21 at 09.40.02

Igglepiggle and Upsy Daisy have to sneak past Jacob Rees-Mogg who is sleeping through his elected duties.

09:00 – Nigella’s Christmas Puddings

Would you prefer them just as they are or with a light dusting of icing sugar? One for the blokes to contemplate with the Radio Times on their laps.

Join the latest Aled Jones wanna-a-be’s as they trade their souls for five minutes in the limelight in return for a severe beating and sustained bullying programme when they return to school.

12:00 – Only Fools and Horses: The Next Generation

A naively commissioned and classic-ruining rehash that sees Del, Rodders and Damien break Uncle Albert out of a cryogenic storage facility before seeking to reclaim the fortune that they lost after recovering it in the last rehash about them losing the original fortune, with help from Harry Potter.

15:00 – The Thrashing of Prince Andrew

No Queen’s speech this year, just a Safari across the Sandringham estate with Her Majesty taking shots at the disgraced Duke of York from the sunroof of her Range Rover as he scrambles for his life.

David Baddiel talks us through the funniest bits of last year’s show when Frank Skinner was discussing his most hilarious moments from the previous year’s show which featured Ben Elton miming his favourite Black Adder episodes.

19:30 – East Bellenders

Haemorrhaging audience figures to ITVs Coronation Chicken Street, this attempt by the BBC to do something different isn’t actually half bad. – A genetically cloned Mitchell brother returns to the Square seeking vengeance on those who created him. Ends in a naked mass-brawl with people simultaneously crying, fighting and shagging like something out of Caligula.

Only broadcast to sober up any stragglers and to stop Putin from hijacking the airwaves. You’ve made it. Congratulations. See you again next year and stop complaining about the license fee.
