The Not Going Out Christmas special will premiere on BBC One on Christmas Eve (Tuesday December 24th) at 10pm, it has been announced.
Created by Lee Mack, Not Going Out follows Lee and Lucy as they tackle the challenges of raising seven year old Charlie, five year old twins Benji and Molly, and keep the romance alive in their marriage. The comedy series is produced by Avalon Television and stars Lee Mack, Sally Bretton, Finley Southby, Max Pattison, Francesca Newman, Max Willis, Bobby Ball, Hugh Dennis, Abigail Cruttenden, Geoffrey Whitehead and Deborah Grant.
In the special, titled Driving Home For Christmas, Lee and Lucy pop out on a last-minute Christmas Eve mission for the kids. With Lucy’s father Geoffrey, cutting more of a strict and stuffy Victorian gent than usual, and lovely mum Wendy fortunately on hand to temporarily mind the children, surely it will be an uneventful evening? As ever for Lee, things don’t quite go to plan with a theft and unexpected trip into deep countryside. Meanwhile at home, Lee’s lovably feckless father, Frank, also turns up to offer gifts and his unique festive flavour.
