The Still Open All Hours Christmas special will premiere on BBC One on Monday December 23rd at 8:30pm, it has been announced.
Still Open All Hours stars Sir David Jason as 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 series is produced by BBC Studios and stars Sir David Jason, James Baxter, Stephanie Cole, Maggie Ollerenshaw, Brigit Forsyth, Tim Healy, Johnny Vegas, Kulvinder Ghir, Sally Lindsay, Geoffrey Whitehead and Katie Redford.
In this year’s Christmas special, Granville tries to put the magic back into Christmas but things don’t always go according to plan and people keep disappearing – although the nations’ favourite grocer might have one last trick he can perform successfully, if he can find a glamorous assistant. Eric and Cyril try to persuade their wives to try Arkwrights’ special French custard and Mr Newbold ‘accidentally’ bumps into Mrs Rossi at the café and she invites him to Christmas lunch, but will the Black Widow throw the book at him when she finds out?
