Great Christmas Bake Off

by Hannah Mellin |

Do you know what's more important than presents and pigs in blankets? Christmas telly.

Yep, amongst partying the night away, seeing family and friends, watching the Queen's speech and drinking lots of mulled wine - we like to spend our winter nights curled up in front of the TV with a plate full of mince pies.

And to get us all in the festive spirit, the BBC have announced their FULL AND VERY EXCITING December schedule.

Here's what's coming to your screens this December.

Call The Midwife

Call the midwife

The Nuns of Nonnatus are back for their beloved christmas special and boy, this one just may be the best yet.

This year, the staff of Nonnatus House will head to South Africa for an unconventional Christmas. Get ready to grab the tissues.

Doctor Who

Call the midwife

After a year long break, Peter Capaldi joins forces with a superhero in 'The Return of Doctor Mysterio'.

Jonathan Creek

Jonathan Creek

Johnathan and Polly Creek (Alan Davies and Sarah Alexander) back with a new mystery to solve, the 'spookiest ever', in fact. Everything is being kept extremely hush hush for now.

Mrs Brown Boys and Outnumbered Reunion

There's another double bill of Mrs Browns Boys to look forward to AND the ultimate Outnumbered reunion will see our favourite family join forces again for a one-off special.

Roald Dahl's Revolting Rhymes

A brand new adpated animation will see Dominic West, Rob Brydon, Gemma Chan (and more) lend their voices to a Roald Dahl classic.

**Robot Wars **

There'll be more mechanical drama as celebrity guests will be taking part in two Christmas specials - battling their robots agaisn't the infamous house robots.


The Great Christmas Bake Off

Great Christmas Bake Off

The perfect foursome (Mary Berry, Paull Hollywood, Mel and Sue) will bid farewell to the BBC (sob!) in a final Bake Off that will bring back famiilar faces from over the years.

Our bottoms will most definitely be soggy by the time the end credits roll!

Strictly Come Dancing Christmas Special
