on

AIRDATE: Tuesday 8 December 2015 at 7.30pm on ITV

Comedian Jack Whitehall is the host for this year’s Royal Variety Performance from the Royal Albert Hall in the presence of Prince Harry. The annual event is held on behalf of the Entertainment Artistes Benevolent Fund, whose patron is the Queen, with proceeds from the evening going to the charity. The first Royal Variety Performance – then known as the Royal Command Performance – was held in July 1912 before King George V and Queen Mary in the Palace Theatre in Shaftesbury Avenue. The evening has always featured family entertainment, comedy, singing, dancing, magic and other speciality acts.

This year’s star-studded spectacular includes performances by Sir Elton John, One Direction, Kylie Minogue, Little Mix, Ricky Martin, Jeff Lynne’s ELO, Josh Groban, The Corrs, Brandon Flowers, Beverley Knight, and Britain’s Got Talent winners Jules, Matisse and Friends. The cast of the classic musical Mary Poppins perform a piece from the show and the world famous Cirque de Soleil are on hand to provide some balletic glamour.

Also featured are the cast of the Olivier award- winning The Play that Goes Wrong, while more laughs are provided by Romesh Ranganathan, Matt Forde and Chris Ramsey on what promises to be a fine evening’s entertainment.

Gordon, Gino and Fred’s Great Christmas Roast

Gordon, Gino and Fred’s Great Christmas Roast, airing on Thursday 21 December at 9.00pm on ITV, two of the nation’s favourite chefs go head-to-head to create an epic Christmas banquet in celebration of some real heroes. Gordon Ramsay and Gino D’Acampo battle it out to produce the ultimate festive menu, creating scrumptious starters, magnificent mains and delectable desserts for 100 deserving diners.

The guest list is made up of members of the public and the emergency services who bravely risked their lives during tragic events and went above the call of duty to help others. Ensuring the heroes have a night to remember – and keeping the mulled wine flowing – is master maître d’ Fred Sirieix. As they battle it out for the title of Banquet Champion, Gordon and Gino are given much needed assistance from some celebrity helpers.

As no festive feast is complete without the right tipple, prior to the banquet the three men scour France in a motor home on a mission to bring back the best beverage for the special night. They have braved the elements – and each other – to find the boldest reds, the cheekiest wine and, of course, the best celebratory champers to bring the heroes the festive cheer they deserve.

Gordon, Gino and Fred’s Great Christmas Roast airs Thursday 21 December 2017 at 9.00pm.
