Sharon Horgan‘s Little Cracker airs at 9.00pm on Thursday 20th December, then again at midnight on 26th December – both times on Sky 1. Sharon’s episode is set in 1984. Christmas on the Horgans’ turkey farm is a hectic time and 14-year-old Sharon must do her share of the turkey plucking. Things look up when she meets easy-on-the-eye fellow plucker, James, although their plan to meet later that night sparks a chain of events that spell disaster for the Horgans.
Rebecca Front, star of The Thick of It and Psychobitches as well as seminal classics like The Day Today, Big Train and Knowing Me Knowing You is also featuring in this series. Her episode airs second in the run, on 11th December, and features Front as her kind-hearted head teacher, Miss Dyson, who has a plan to help little Rebecca outsmart Death and protect her mum after the death of her grandfather.
