Topping the bill on this year's festive edition is the lovely Doctor, who is busy promoting the Doctor Who Christmas Special - 'The Snowmen' - which will air on BBC1 on Christmas Day. Other guests due to roll around the couch full of Christmas cheer include Hollywood royalty in the form of Dustin Hoffman, comedian Billy Connolly (who will hopefully be more receptive to Norton than he was to Tubridy last week... yikes), and Absolutely Fabulous creator/star Jennifer Saunders. Yep, we'll leave it with Ab Fab. I doubt she'd want much reference made to Viva Forever since the reviews came out. If you fancy more Christmas cheer after this, there's a repeat of Grumpy Guide to Christmas on BBC2 from 11.05pm. Expect burning conifers off the roof, eating reindeer and disappearing to the toilet with just a few bottles of wine.
