The Christmas special of Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer’s BBC Two comedy series House of Fools will premiere on Sunday December 28th at 10pm, it has been announced.
House of Fools is set in Bob’s grubby flat which he unwillingly shares with Vic and a constant stream of unwanted visitors, including lady-obsessed lothario Beef and Geordie ex-con Bosh. The comedy series, which has been picked up for a second season, is produced by BBC In-house Comedy production in association with Pett Productions and stars Reeves, Mortimer, Matt Berry, Dan Skinner, Morgana Robinson and Daniel Simonsen.
The special opens on Christmas Eve and Vic and Beef can’t wait to get the party started. But Bob’s celebrations are cut short when the special present he organised for his sulky son Erik is unexpectedly engulfed in flames. To find a suitable replacement they join Julie and Bosh on an underground boat journey to none other than pop icon Phil Collins’ mansion. A final surprise awaits them when Santa appears on the scene to save the day.
