Matt Smith plans to make turkey soup with his Christmas leftovers.
The 'Doctor Who' actor spends the festive season with his family and, much to the unhappiness of his mum, he enjoys making one of his favourite culinary treats with the remains of his roast turkey.
He said: "Make turkey soup with the leftovers. Bones, the whole lot, in a big old pot. Turkey soup is amazing.
"But it does make the house smell, so my mum complains. Me and my dad campaign for it every year."
Matt admits he and his family stick to the same traditions every Christmas - including buying a present they know his grandfather will hate.
He explained: "I wake up in the morning. Have breakfast - a lovely breakfast with all the family. Then we all open out presents.
"We buy my granddad a dressing gown every year because we know he hates them. That's the family joke and it's very funny. He gets one every year and he's like, 'Oh right, another dressing gown, bloody hell.' and laughs his head off.
"My mates normally come over and this year we all get to watch 'Doctor Who'."
