Michael said of the ITV special: “It feels like Christmas has come early!

“Back together for our third TV special, this time celebrating the season of good will with some amazing guests and the best music.

“All with a sprinkling of tinsel and fairy dust. It’s the recipe for a perfect pre-Christmas snuggle…and that’s just me and Alfie!”

Alfie added “We’re back together…again! We’re lucky enough to be hosting another Ball & Boe ITV special, this time with a Christmas twist.

“It’s going to be an evening not to be missed, so get your slippers on, warm up the mince pies and mulled wine and join us. And wait until you see our special guests!”

Ball & Boe: A Very Merry Christmas will air on ITV in December with an exact air date to be confirmed.
