Lee Mack’s multi-award winning sitcom Not Going Out returns to BBC One 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 bought by 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 the madness and mayhem, it’s guaranteed to be a family Christmas to remember…
The Not Going Out Christmas Special will be in BBC ONE’s Christmas schedule – the exact airdate will be confirmed closer to transmission
