TV Cream: Pick Of The Day

December 24th, 2015

Pointless Celebrities Christmas Eve, 19.10, BBC1

A pretty ace night on BBC1, all told, almost up there with the legendary Christmas Eve 1981 for non-stop family fun, thanks to Professor Branestawm (in a much more suitable slot than last year’s post-watershed outing) and Would I Lie To You in addition to the stuff we’re billing. Panto is inevitably the theme, so that means The Krankies, Su Pollard, Jeffrey Holland and Colin Baker, plus Xander singing a duet with Kim Wilde. It’s just like having The Generation Game back!
