Not Going Out Live

Confirmed for BBC One on 21 December at 9pm to 9.30pm

Tuesday 18 December



For the first time ever, Lee Mack’s multi award-winning hit show Not Going Out is going out live on BBC One this Christmas.

With no room for slip-ups or mistakes (no pressure then) we join Lee (Lee Mack) and Lucy (Sally Bretton) live from their festively decorated living room, nervously discussing the Ding Dong Merrily On Live Christmas Spectacular - the Christmas variety show they’ve been strong-armed into organising to raise money for their children’s school.

But things are rarely plain sailing for our duo, as they soon come to realise: with an animal impersonator as the only confirmed performer, quality acts are worryingly thin on the ground. Who will Lee and Lucy turn to? Surely Toby (Hugh Dennis) and uptight wife Anna (Abigail Cruttenden) can’t be roped in? With egg juggling and some knife throwing (CUT!) for good measure... what could possibly go wrong?
