Diane Morgan will return as Philomena Cunk for another one-off special next month.
Cunk on Christmas will put Philomena on a festive mission to track down the true meaning of Christmas, and find out exactly what it is he wants.
Along the way, she’ll look at pagan winter festivals, the nativity story, “Sir Charles Dickings” and that big ol’ fat bloke in the red suit. And all the while, she’ll be grilling a variety of experts, and asking the all important questions we dare not ask, such as why people still put up with brussel sprouts.
The special follows the hugely acclaimed Cunk On Shakespeare earlier this year, and is part of a huge range of festive TV on offer this year featuring TVO favourites – from special editions of Yonderland and Inside No. 9 to the return of The Windsors, Walliams and Friend and Doctor Who.
Cunk may also be appearing in Charlie Brooker’s now traditional Wipe for 2016, though we were unable to confirm this at the time of going to press. If we get any confirmation, we’ll be sure to let you know asap.
We’ll be bringing you more info on Chrimbo viewing to watch out for closer to the time, and in the meantime, let’s revisit some classic Cunk action.
