Some highlights have been announced for Radio 2 over the festive period:

Christmas Day - live from comedian Matt Lucas's house, with celebrity guests and music. Followed by a 2-hour Take That special, in which the trio play their favourite music.

In addition, Gary Barlow interviews both Paul McCartney and Jeff Lynne for an hour each.

Craig Charles returns with his third Scary Fairy story, recording with the BBC Philharmonic and Curtis Stigers (rhymes with tigers)

On New Year's Day an exclusive hour-long interview with Brigitte Bardot will find her talking about her dreams of becoming a ballerina and how she became a screen icon.

I wouldn't mind listening to Carnie's Christmas Bloopers - a 2 hour special of rollicking bad decisions made by the various heads of Radio 2, over the last 20 years or so.

Ho Ho Ho!

Brilliant! Very Happy Very Happy

It might take more than two hours to cover all the bloopers though.

Thanks Ian.

Jeremy Vine: Agony Uncle ..very funny - I'll be listening.

I only mentioned Barry H the other day,to Eileen,so happy to see he'll be back on our airwaves over the Christmas period.

Brigitte Bardot ? Convicted five times for inciting racial hatred. Not for me,thanks.
