In the first ever Merry Britsmas, we begin by discussing and reviewing the first festive special from a classic UK sitcom, The Royle Family.

We also discuss the madness, splendour and joy of Christmas Number Ones, before focusing in a little more detail on Slade's mega-hit 'Merry Xmas Everybody'.

So, get your Xmas jumper on, grab a hot festive beverage and settle in for some British Christmas feels!
