Families at Christmas 23 Dec 2009
The Royle family at Christmas
A phone-in on how to survive Christmas with the extended family.

In-laws, great-aunts, exes, step-kids and long-lost cousins - as Christmas descends upon us, so do our dear families. But how do you make sure that everyone rubs along together without the all-too-common seasonal rows breaking out over the TV remote, cooking the sprouts, or who got what present? Have you found a way to cope with difficult in-laws, or balance the competing demands of step-families? Or perhaps you are wondering how to get through a day you never planned to spend alone? Jane is joined in the studio by Agony Aunt, Deidre Sanders.
