Saturday 26 December at 6PM on ITV
On Boxing Day it’s Tim Lovejoy, Kay Burley, Eni Aluko and Richard Herring taking on the quizzing pros, who will sport their latest fancy dress outfits.

This year’s theme is famous portraits. So look out for The Chasers emulating Andy Warhol’s Marilyn Monroe, Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, Holbein’s Henry VIII, Vermeer’s Girl with a Pearl Earring and Frans Hals’ The Laughing Cavalier.

Sunday 27 December at 7PM on ITV
The Chase: The Bloopers is back for another hour of laughs, gaffs and outtakes that were never meant to see the light of day. Bradley Walsh presents with Chasers Anne Hegerty, Darragh Ennis, Mark Labbett, Jenny Ryan, Paul Sinha and Shaun Wallace.
