Hayley Atwell will be drunk ''before 12'' tomorrow (25.12.11) thanks to an alcohol-laced cheese dish she plans to cook

Hayley Atwell plans to get "p****d before 12" on Christmas Day (25.12.11) after taking culinary tips from Ray Winstone.

The 29-year-old actress - who appears alongside the 'King Arthur' actor in forthcoming crime movie 'The Sweeney' - plans to try out a cheese-based delicacy the 54-year-old star recommended when cooking her festive foods tomorrow.

She exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "Ray Winstone taught me to get a wheel of stilton and take an ice cream scoop out of it and then pour in some good quality port into the middle of it and put it in the fridge.

"Then overnight all the port goes through the veins of the stilton and the next day it's just heaven and you get p****d before 12. So I'll be making that this Christmas."

But the 'Captain America: The First Avenger' actress needs no help when it comes to cooking their main meal and has already planned out her festive feast.

She added: "I'm the cook in the family because I'm the only child so the pressure is on me to produce a great feast. I'm cooking chicken because I prefer it to turkey. I'll put cream cheese and pancetta on top of it and I'll put it in the oven and then I'll turn the chicken upside down so all the juices go to the bottom and run through the breast so the breast doesn't get too dry. It's heaven.

"I've done the recipe once or twice and I tried it on Thanksgiving this year, that's always a good practice for Christmas Day. I like doing a cheeky practice run to make sure I know what I'm doing."
