2020’s Christmas Day TV line-up won’t disappoint.

BBC, ITV and Channel 4 are bringing festive films, one-off specials and classic episodes to our screens today, December 25.

Once you’ve eaten Christmas dinner, opened your presents and spoken to loved ones, there’s nothing more satisfying than crashing on the couch and settling down with one of these Christmassy programmes.

But what exactly is on the box today?

Here is all you need to know…
