Claire Carter - BBC Somerset Breakfast Show presenter: "I loved hosting last year's Christmas Celebration and I cannot wait to take to the stage to put on a show that's going to blow the baubles off you. With an amazing team, this certainly will be a festive extravaganza like no other. However, don't think we'll do all of the work - we'll be getting you involved too so if you're coming along get those singing voices ready. Expect trills, thrills and all the trimmings. We might even get a white Christmas. See you there."

Nick Bull - BBC Somerset Editor: "The team had no idea how popular the BBC Somerset Christmas Celebration would become, when they set about putting together the first one in 2013. It's quickly become a staple of the festive calendar and so we wanted to do something really special for its fifth year. Our plans have become so big we've even decided to give the show a new name for one year only. I can't wait for you to see our talented team on stage in South Somerset."
