The day is finally here! Now that you've opened your presents, dusted off your Christmas jumpers and eaten too much food, it's now time to settle down on the sofa for hours of brilliant Christmas television.
Gavin & Stacey Christmas Special
BBC One, 8.30pm
It’s been ten years since Gavin & Stacey left our screens, and now fans can rejoice as the Shipmans and the Wests are back for one last Christmas special! Gavin and Stacey are in Wales for the Christmas festivities and as usual, tensions are high as the families come together for the festive period.
Gavin and Stacey are now parents to a ten-year-old and Nessa and Smithy are sharing custody of the now 12-year-old Neil.
With Uncle Bryn on cooking duties, Pam making snide comments about Gwen’s hosting skills, and a shocking discovery that puts Dawn and Pete’s marriage in jeopardy, the episode is sure to be an explosive return.
Call the Midwife
BBC One, 7pm
The nuns and midwives are off to Scotland after Mother Mildred receives a calling from God to set up a house in the Outer Hebrides and Nonnatus House and the Turner family are hit with a bout of influenza.
The group use their skills to help the island as they recover, while battling the cold weather and bleak terrain.
The Queen’s Christmas message
ITV and BBC One, 3pm
The Queen delivers her annual Christmas speech to the nation and Commonwealth, reflecting on the past year and what to look ahead to.
The Queen gave her first Christmas Day message in 1952, and the first one that was ever broadcast on TV was in 1957.
The Great Christmas Bake Off
Channel 4, 7.10pm
The Bake Off team are back for one last outing in 2019 for The Great Christmas Bake Off.

The two-part special will see the bakers take part in festive challenges in an attempt to impress judges Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood, as well as a special guest appearance from rock band Status Quo.
