Not Going Out, Lee Mack’s hit BBC One sitcom, is getting a live episode this Christmas.
Mack returns alongside co-star Sally Bretton, Hugh Dennis and Abigail Cruttenden for the special episode which finds Lee (Mack) and Lucy (Bretton) in their festively decorated living room, nervously discussing the Ding Dong Merrily on Live Christmas Spectacular – the Christmas variety show they’ve been strong-armed into organising to raise money for their children’s school.
But things are rarely plain sailing for our duo, as they soon come to realise, with an animal impersonator as the only confirmed performer, quality acts are worryingly thin on the ground.
Who will Lee and Lucy turn to? Surely Toby (Dennis) and uptight wife Anna (Cruttenden) can’t be roped in?
With raw egg juggling and some knife throwing (CUT!) for good measure… what could possibly go wrong?
Talking about going live for the first time ever, Lee Mack said: “Live Episode of a BBC One sitcom…what could possibly go wrong? Loads.
“Which, let’s be honest, is why you sadists will be watching. So don’t miss out on seeing me end my career.”
