Not Going Out Going Live at Christmas

For the first time ever, BBC One's hit sitcom Not Going Out will be airing live on TV this Christmas.


Written by and starring Lee Mack, there'll be no room for slip ups or mistakes as we join Lee 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 raw egg juggling and some knife throwing (CUT!) for good measure… what could possibly go wrong?


Talking about going live for the first time ever, Lee Mack said, “Live Episode of a BBC One sitcom…what could possibly go wrong? Loads. Which, let’s be honest, is why you sadists will be watching. So don’t miss out on seeing me end my career.”


Not Going Out Live will air on Friday 21st December on BBC One
