How the stars like to spend Christmas

Our favourite celebrities each have their own set of traditions when it comes to marking the holiday season. We find out how this famous lot choose to spend their Christmas Day…

Sally Lindsay

“While my kids still like to cuddle me I’m going to have a nice Christmas at home, and then we’ll go up to Manchester for a week like we always do.

“We always watch A Christmas Carol, any version but usually the Muppets one on Christmas Eve; and we have an elf day as well where we watch Elf in elf hats.

“The boys dress up and my husband Steve – a really cool rock star – has got an elf jumper with a hat that he puts on. It’s all going on!”

David Suchet

“I’ll be going to my son Robert’s family in Bath, where there will be enough of us to have a jolly good Christmas. My ideal Christmas Day looks like a Christmas card with snow on the ground and Christmas trees and lights – but in reality, with climate change, it hardly ever snows!

“Christmases are very different from how they were when I was growing up; there’s a huge pressure on how grand the presents are now, so it’s lost such a lot.

“I thank God that I do have family to share the wonderful feast of Christmas and to remember the joy in its original meaning, rather than just a time for materialistic pleasure.”

Rylan Clark-Neal

“My ideal Christmas Day looks like pyjamas, presents, food, maybe the odd row and a load of games – karaoke and the one where you put the thing on your head and people have to guess who you are!

“I am normally the cook in my house, when it comes to Christmas. I do like to do it, but I don’t know what we’re doing this Christmas; whether it’s at home or the in-laws’ or my mum’s or my brother’s, but I’m sure I’ll be roasting something.”

Jane McDonald

“My ideal Christmas Day is waking up without an alarm clock or a hangover, listening to the church bells nearby, with Ed by my side, at home in my own bed. I would also love it to snow.

“Then it’s time to get ready to celebrate with loved ones and eat delicious food all day long. I especially love the evening when we have turkey sandwiches, pork pie and pickled onions, watching a Christmas movie.”

Chris Tarrant

“My ideal Christmas involves big log fires, a huge turkey and my whole army of kids and grandkids all in one house, in the country in the middle of nowhere.”
