The Still Open All Hours Christmas special will premiere on Thursday December 28th at 7:30pm, it has been announced.
Still Open All Hours follows Granville who some years back inherited the shop from his beloved but miserly Uncle Arkwright. He now runs it with his son Leroy, a cheerful, good-looking lad with more female admirers than Granville ever had. The comedy stars David Jason, James Baxter, Tim Healy, Stephanie Cole, Sally Lindsay, Maggie Ollerenshaw, Johnny Vegas, Kulvinder Ghir, Brigit Forsyth, Nina Wadia and Geoffrey Whitehead.
In the Christmas special, it’s Christmas in the nation’s favourite corner shop, but some of Granville’s most important customers have plans to leave town. Not only is Madge planning to take his beloved Mavis away for a Christmas break but is Mr Newbold also thinking of doing a runner, leaving Granville at the mercy of Mrs Featherstone’s amorous advances? Granville has to use some of his craftiest wiles to persuade everyone not to travel at Christmas. After all, as well as wanting to stay close to Mavis, he’s also got to shift a large number of distinctly wonky Christmas Crackers.
