Not Going Out’s Christmas Special airs tonight on BBC One – here’s all you need to know.
The BBC’s multi-award winning primetime sitcom Not Going Out, written by and starring the British Comedy Award and BAFTA-winning comedian Lee Mack, returns for a much anticipated Christmas special.
In Series 8 earlier this year, we last saw Lee (Lee Mack) and Lucy (Sally Bretton) showcase their chaotic parenting skills as they tackled the challenges of raising seven year old Charlie, five year old twins Benji and Molly, AND keep the romance alive in their marriage.
For the Christmas special, we catch up with Lee and Lucy’s growing family in the festive season.
It’s Christmas Eve, and Lee and Lucy face a possible yuletide disaster when they discover the perfect present they have bought for their children has already been gifted to them by their grandparents.
Lee is forced to rush out at the last minute in search of a suitable substitute.
But, with all the local shops closing their doors for the festive period, the race is on for Lee to avoid the ultimate parenting fail on Christmas morning and disappoint his three excited children…
Not Going Out’s Christmas special airs tonight, Christmas Eve from 9:35pm-10:15pm.
A ninth and tenth series of Not Going Out have already been ordered to air from 2018.
