Michael McIntyre is to get one-hour BBC One Christmas special.
The comedian will get a special festive version of his 'Comedy Roadshow', which will be one of the channel's highlights on Christmas day (25.12.11).
The 'Britain's Got Talent's judge said: "Having visited 12 of my favourite cities, I'm thrilled that my Comedy Roadshow is coming home for Christmas. It's such an honour for the show to be on Christmas Day and to be introducing some of the biggest names in comedy to entertain a turkey-filled nation slumped on their sofas!"
Mark Linsey, Controller of Entertainment Commissioning at the BBC - added: "Who better to bring some Christmas cheer to BBC One viewers than Michael. He is such a favourite with our audiences and this show is bound to be a real festive treat."
'Comedy Roadshow' features a routine from Michael, followed by three other comedians before the headline act from different venues around the UK.
The line-up of acts on the festive special has not yet been announced.
The second series of the show, made by Open Mike Production, is currently airing on BBC One on Saturday nights.
