Stay in This X-Mas & Watch NOT GOING OUT Christmas Special on BBC One
The BBC's longest running and multi-award winning primetime sitcom NOT GOING OUT, starring the British Comedy Award and BAFTA-winning comedian Lee Mack, returns to our screens this festive season for a much anticipated Christmas special. Viewers last saw Lee (Lee Mack) and Lucy (Sally Bretton) showcase their chaotic parenting skills as they tackled the challenges of raising seven year old Charlie, five year old twins Benji and Molly, AND keep the romance alive in their marriage.Now it's Christmas Eve, and Lee and Lucy face a possible yuletide disaster when they discover the perfect present they have bought for their children has already been gifted to them by their grandparents Geoffrey (Geoffrey Whitehead) and Wendy (Deborah Grant). Lee is forced to rush out at the last minute in search of a suitable substitute. But, with all the local shops closing their doors for the festive period, the race is on for Lee to avoid the ultimate parenting fail on Christmas morning and disappoint his three excited children. With Lee's lovably feckless father Frank (Bobby Ball) and uptight neighbours Toby (Hugh Dennis) and Anna (Abigail Cruttenden) dropping in to join in the madness and mayhem, it's guaranteed to be a family Christmas to remember.
Not Going Out Christmas Special will be in BBC ONE's Christmas schedule (exact date TBC)
