Nothing can beat the selection on TV than Christmas Day. Some of the best movies and TV shows are scheduled.

Tuck into your selection box and feast your eyes on some of these delights.

Christmas is once again upon us and Agnes is already snowed under. Dermot needs an elf for his Santa’s grotto, Grandad thinks the house is haunted, Cathy’s got herself an internet date, and to top it all off Rory is undergoing plastic surgery!
