last-tango-in-halifax-christmas-specialThe two-part Last Tango In Halifax Christmas Special will premiere on BBC One on Monday December 19th at 9pm and will conclude the following evening in the same time-slot, it has been announced.

Last Tango In Halifax follows Alan Buttershaw and Celia Dawson, two widowers in their 70s who, when their grandchildren put them on Facebook, rediscover feelings for one another that are just as intense and beautiful now as they were 60 years ago when they were teenagers. The drama series is produced by Red Production Company and stars Derek Jacobi, Anne Reid, Nicola Walker, Sarah Lancashire and Dean Andrews.

The special is set two years after Kate’s tragic death and will see Caroline coming to terms with yet more changes in her life. With a new job at a very different school, a new family home in Huddersfield and a chance encounter with a potential love interest, could things be looking up for her and her children? Meanwhile, Gillian is struggling to come to terms with the unusual activity that keeps happening in the barn. With issues from her past coming back to haunt her, will she let them affect her relationship with Robbie?
