Yeah, I thought I'd put the invite across, seemed the daycent thing to do.

In all seriousness though, it seems David's older sister Lynne and her fellah, Kevin Briggs, sent a text inviting them to a £7.99 Xmas special meal in a local Weatherspoons. Not bad for a dinner with all the trimmings.

The couple are reported to have booked a table The Half Moon in Stepney, east London, for a family get together during the festive season.

According to The Sun, Kevin - who has previously spent time in prison for the harassment of his former girlfriend - sent a text to all of their relatives, including the famous family.

It read: "Spoons xmas meal in a few weeks. Let us know if you're in. We'll do a fiver [£5] max secret santa." He later added: "Sorry, with inflation we're making it £6." Nargh, it's always the secret santa budgets for under a tenner that cause the most stress, what with a bit of imagination being required.

Lynne - who has three children from her marriage to ex-husband Colin Every - is reported to have lived off of benefits for years despite her brother's £200million fortune.

And while the pair are said to have had a strained relationship in the past, they're believed to have grown closer this year after her and Kevin's newborn was hospitalised due to illness.

You got to LOVE the festive season - getting together with all the rellies. Like, all of them. All we can do it pray all those articles about freak snow storms come to fruition.
