    So it’s time for the Christmas TV 2020 thread. Know of any new specials this year? New movies coming etc

    Turns out there is going to be a Britain’s got talent Christmas special.

    https://www.underthechristmastree.co.uk/britains-got-talent-christmas-special/

    BGT Christmas Special is postponed as the production got shut down after several crew members tested positive for COVID19.

    The special will be filmed later in the year or early next year. And will now air sometime in 2021.

    Saw the first advert for "I'm a celebrity, get me out of here" this morning, coming in November (from Wales!!) Always a solid stepping stone on the countdown IMO.

    It sure is. I'm really looking forward to it. It will be so interesting to see how they do it in Wales.

    Heard on the radio yesterday that is in doubt now as the area they are suppose to be filming in has had increased restrictions.

    Nothing online about it even the tabloids... I'm imagine it was just radio gossip to fill time. Sure the UK is going into heavier lockdowns but the Premier League can still go ahead and one PL club would have more staff and players than the entire production of I'm a celeb.

    As the old saying goes... money talks....

    Sports review of the year might be a good bit shorter though!

    I’m not ashamed to admit I feel the tiniest bit emosh at stages watching it. It just feel like a big old cup of normal. I’m gonna be a wreck at Christmas and New Years at this rate :P

    OFAH
    The Royle Family
    Vicar of Dibley
    Little Britain

    And Christmas bake off is always a decent watch.

    Channel 4s lineup is steady. The usual suspects. Nothing to get too excited about.

    I do hope theres not going to be loads of Corona and brexit shows, here's hoping the media give us all just a little break from all the negative crap we've had through the year.

    Now folks, if this thread is just going to turn into Ryan Tubridy bashing... please continue. :pac:

    I hope the toy show won’t do the usual of showing toys that are nigh on impossible to get. This year, a lot of people are having a hard time financially, the shops don’t have stock and there’s little time for parents to source these things. We may still have restrictions, so I hope that they have a bit of cop on this year.

    That's complete mis-information about stock. Smyths had to make a press release to confirm there is plenty of stock. You do know that firstly stock is bought MONTHS in advance of the busy season and secondly supply chain is still open in lockdown.

    Please don't buy into the scaremongering from the FB experts, who said Mary down the road, well her daughter's next door neighbours cousin through marriage said that the toy shop have no stock.

    Unnecessarily scaremongering only puts pressure on people who are already in pressurised times.
