What’s on UK TV this Christmas 2015?

As we enter another festive period, there’s plenty to look forward to on the telly this Christmas. Whether you’re in the UK or overseas, getting access to the best in British entertainment is simple with UKTV2C and to give you a sneak peak at what’s in store, here’s our run down of what’s coming up and our recommended list of unmissable entertainment:

I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here Final,  2015 – ITV1 9:00pm
If you haven’t heard about the squabbles, tantrums and torment going on in the Australian jungle this year then you must have had the TV switched off! It’s an unhappy camp this year and with evictions starting tonight, this is when the show starts to get a little nastier and more personal. With recent in-fighting mostly brought about by Lady Colin Campbell, many of the contestants are hoping for a swift eviction for the self-proclaimed high class socialite. However, the voting public may have a vindictive streak and could easily keep the “lady” in the camp to maintain the heated entertainment.

With just a week left to run, it’s going to get very interesting so make sure you tune in this week to see who stays, who goes and who gets to face the dreaded bush-tucker trials.

BBC Sports Personality of the Year,  2015 – BBC1 7:00pm
Every year, the public votes for their favourite sports man or woman and this year the contestants are yet to be finally announced. According to the bookmakers, there’s no clear out and out favourite but amongst the frontrunners, names include Jessica Ennis-Hill, Andy Murray, three-time F1 World Champion Lewis Hamilton, Chris Froome, Wayne Rooney and Mo Farah.

With the Davis Cup final starting today in Ghent, contested between Belgium and Great Britain, a win for the Brits could propel Andy Murray to the front as favourite to pick up the coveted trophy for a second time.

The Apprentice Final – BBC1 9:00pm
Love them or loathe them, every year a group of wannabe entrepreneurs battle it out to be Lord Sugar’s next lap dog and the festive period will bring the curtain down on this year’s run. With so many of this year’s supposed front-runners falling when the pressure told, some unexpected names are now starting to show their qualities. Joseph Valente is now regarded as the surprise favourite to win, with American Vana Koutsomitis, Richard Woods and Scott Saunders being seen as other plausible winners.

With just a few weeks left to run, the pressure is going to mount so make sure you catch the final two battling it out over the Christmas holidays.

Peter Kay: 20 Years of Funny – BBC1 9:00pm
Bolton’s number one entertainment export has been on our television screens making us laugh for twenty years now and there’s nothing quite like Peter Kay’s brand of humour to get us into festive mood. For one hour, the show looks back at the comedian’s career in his very own unique and larger than life style. A perfect way to start the Christmas period.

Friday 25th December 2015

Strictly Come Dancing Christmas Special, BBC1 6:30pm
The Christmas Day evening’s entertainment starts off with the usual ballroom dancing entertainment hosted by Claudia Winkleman and Tess Daly. This highly popular show has gone from strength to strength every year and with the era of reality TV having started to get tired and predictable (X Factor anyone?), it’s great to see that good old fashioned family entertainment is still as timeless as ever!

Downton Abbey – ITV1 8:30pm
With this being the last ever episode of the much loved period drama, this feature length curtain closer is bound to bring tears to the eyes of millions of avid fans across the country and worldwide. Without doubt, this will be the most watched show in the UK on Christmas Day so is it worth watching anything else?

There’s still a large number of shows and time slots to be confirmed on both the BBC and ITV so check our Facebook page for updates on festive shows as they’re announced. In the meantime, if you want to ensure you get to watch all the Christmas TV with your family wherever you are this Christmas, then contact the UKTV2C sales team today to discuss your needs.
