In a last-ditch attempt to claw back Christmas from the brink of disaster, Al Murray’s pub landlord hosts the ultimate late-night pub lock in. Joining the publican in his pub The Reindeer’s Head for an evening of festivities are an audience of celebrity guests. The landlord serves up pints of yuletide cheer, including leading some seasonal sing-a-alongs with the pub’s house band, The Remoans – whose number’s include You Can’t Even Say Christmas Any More’.
He also invites members of the public to win some early Christmas presents in the game Wrong Answer, where the right answer is the wrong answer, and one lucky famous face gets to climb on the back of Buckarudolph for a robot reindeer rodeo.
This fun-filled festive special gets viewers in the Christmas spirit, while reminding the nation that it was, after all, the British who ‘invented Christmas’.
Al Murray’s Make Christmas Great Again airs Friday 22 December 2017 at 9.00pm on ITV.
