Other highlights include a festive special of 'The Royle Family', which will see the TV-obsessed family awaiting the arrival of Anthony (Ralf Little) and Saskai's (Joanne Froggatt) first child together.
'Top Gear' stars Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May will travel to Bethlehem, crossing Iraq, Jordan and Israel in 'The Three Wise Men', while there will also be specials of 'The Impressions Show', 'Miranda', 'My Family', 'Shooting Stars' and 'the Rob Brydon Show'.
A 'Doctor who' special and 'Only Fools and Horses' prequel 'Rock & Chips' will also be shown, as will the festive editions of 'EastEnders' and 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
