King Gary returning to BBC One this Christmas

Gary King and his (not always so) merry band of neighbours are back just in time for the festivities.

The one-off special follows a hugely successful first series earlier this year and comes ahead of a second series in 2021 and sees Tom Davis back alongside returning cast members Laura Checkley, Simon Day, Camille Coduri, Romesh Ranganathan and Riley Burgin.

Setting out to ensure the annual Butterchurn Crescent Christmas Lights Display is bigger and brighter than ever, Gary King wants to light up the neighbourhood after a tough year. However, his neighbours aren’t quite so keen to go all out as they tighten their belts, keep the ‘leccy bills lean and turn to Secret Santa.

Could a last-minute million-pound contract help Gary fund the Crescent’s illuminations and save Christmas?!

Meanwhile, Terri struggles to get into the festive spirit when she discovers Teddy has fallen out of love with Christmas and is refusing to sing at his choir concert, whilst Big Gary and Denise host the festive house guests from hell.

Speaking about returning this Christmas, writers Tom Davis and James DeFrond said "We are honoured to have been asked to bring the Kings to BBC One this festive season, and after what has been a tough year hopefully we can bring a little joy and laughter with this special episode."
