CHRISTMAS ON ITV 2019

TUNE INTO ITV THIS FESTIVE SEASON

ITV has a stocking full of Christmas and New Year treats for viewers this year, including more drama on the Cobbles, gossip from the Woolpack, entertainment shows, returning Dramas, Christmas specials of viewer favourites and some fantastic films for all the family.

In the run up to Christmas Gordon Ramsay, Gino D'Acampo and Fred Sirieix are back together as this time we see the trio head to Morocco in Gordon, Gino and Fred: A Christmas Roadtrip (23rd Dec), as they take on more food challenges on this new road trip.

Take Me Out (14th & 28th Dec) turns on the lights once again for series 11 and this Christmas viewers will also be treated to two themed specials. The first will be a love letter to the 80's, with the girls rocking shoulder-pads and the boys decked out in windbreakers. With all the bright colours, extravagant hairstyles and synthesised music from the iconic era, viewers will be taken on a nostalgic joyride with Paddy and the flirty thirty. The second themed special will put the brave men and women of the emergency services front and centre, those whose busy work-lives mean they find little time to date. Firefighters, paramedics, police officers - they're all lining up for a chance at being airlifted out of the studio and being sent straight to Fernando's.

There will be festive specials of Celebrity Catchphrase (22nd Dec), The Sara Cox Show at Christmas (21st, 22nd, 28th and 29th Dec), James Martin's Saturday Morning at Christmas (21st and 28th Dec), John & Lisas Weekend Kitchen (22nd and 29th Dec), Tenable All Stars Christmas Special (29th Dec), Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? Celebrity Special (25th Dec), Jonathan Ross (24th Dec, In For A Christmas Penny (21st Dec) and Tipping Point: Lucky Stars Christmas Special (25th Dec) as well as two celebrity Christmas specials of The Chase (21st Dec and 25th Dec) and a Christmas special of This Morning (20th Dec).

Michael Ball and Alfie Boe are teaming up once again in Ball and Boe: A Very Merry Christmas (20th Dec) as we see them once again bring together their unique blend of extraordinary and exceptional talent alongside their infectious humour to this one-off TV special. They will take to the stage to perform some of their critically acclaimed hits, as well as brand new material from their new album Back Together'.

It will be an eventful Christmas in ITV's soaps this year, for Coronation Street and Emmerdale. Christmas is all about family and in Emmerdale it's no different this Yuletide.

On Christmas Day, as The Tates gather to carve the turkey at Home Farm, there is pandemonium when Graham walks in and delivers a devastating revelation, shattering relationships.

Elsewhere, David receives a festive surprise that will set tongues wagging and change lives forever and as the bells ring in for the New Year, we see Victoria go in to labour with her baby.

In Coronation Street the residents are dreaming of a White Christmas, but dreams can all too easily turn to nightmares, and this will be one festive season they will never forget .

When a festive fairground pops up in Weatherfield there is much excitement on the cobbles, but the bleak half hearted attraction fails to deliver. Step forward Michael Bailey, who vows to give his family and the other neighbours a snowy, fun filled experience complete with stalls and rides.

Spirits are high with the reopening of the factory and there's fun to be had as the Platts arrange an elaborate special birthday surprise for David at the fairground with Shona as his present.

But Gary's bid to leave his villainous past behind has upset more than one person and the scene is set for a seasonal showdown that puts the lives of some of our favourite residents in peril.

In The Big Soap Quiz (19th Dec) we see some of the cast of Coronation Street and Emmerdale battle it out once again to see who knows their soap the best.

We will also take a look back at some of Corrie's nostalgic festive moments in Coronation Street at Christmas (20th Dec).

Jeremy Vine is on the quest to find the UK's cleverest quizzer in Quizmaster (29th Dec) as some of Britain's best quizzers are pitted against each other.

In The Chase: Bloopers (24th Dec) viewers will get to see outtakes and bloopers galore, all the bits you were never meant to see and some more bits youll want to see again, in an-hour long blooper and outtake special. Presented by Bradley Walsh and featuring The Governess, The Beast, The Vixen, The Sinnerman and The Dark Destroyer.

Alan Carr is hosting a games night that sees six celebrities take seats on his sofas for a raucous entertainment show which looks back at the good, the cringe and the unbelievable events of the year in Alan Carr's Celebrity Re-Play 2019 (30th Dec). Expect hilarious clips, must-see virals, comedy moments, surprise guests and one celebrity couple having the chance to win 25,000 for charity.

Carol Vorderman will be presenting a one of special, Pride of Britain: Celebrating 20 Years (22nd Dec). We will be reliving many of her favourite memories spanning over the last 20 years. Those big surprises, those outstanding winners and those unforgettable moments.

Paul O'Grady is back with the hugely popular and heart-warming show Paul O'Grady: For The Love of Dogs at Christmas (26th Dec) in this Christmas Special. Paul once again brings his unique blend of heartfelt warmth and humour to the waifs and strays of Battersea as he tries to give the dogs the best Christmas present possible, a new home.

A selection of Christmas films includes the premiere of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 (28th Dec), Shrek (21st Dec), Casino Royale (21st Dec), Quantum of Solace (22nd Dec), The Santa Clause (23rd Dec), Gremlins (23rd Dec), How The Grinch Stole Christmas (24th Dec), Santa Cl
