Strictly Come Dancing is favourite to top Christmas Day 2016 ratings

Christmas Special 2016

Strictly Come Dancing is being tipped to freeze out Frozen for the top spot on Christmas Day.

The BBC One series, which saw over 15 million viewers watching the final last weekend, is tipped to scoop top spot in the Christmas Day viewing figures.

As the countdown towards the post-turkey TV marathon begins on Sunday afternoon, the bookies are looking ahead to which show will take home this year's bragging rights, and the early money points towards Strictly Come Dancing at 7/4.

Despite it's early slot The Great British Bake Off at Christmas could wave goodbye to the BBC with one final hurrah at 5/2, or there's 3/1 on offer Mrs Brown's Boys wins the accolade once again.

10/1 is the next price available with the bookies for Call The Midwife or the free to air premiere of Disney's Frozen to take the top spot. Her Majesty's annual speech is rated at 12/1 with the firm.

Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: "All bets are off when it comes to Auntie Beeb landing the most watched show this year on Christmas Day.

"It's just a case of whittling down the programmes and, at this stage, punters reckon it's a three-horse race between Strictly, Bake Off and Mrs Brown."
