#Blogmas Day 16: Christmas TV

Along with our Christmas dinner and present giving/receiving, Christmas telly is a tradition for most of us. For me, I try not to watch too much TV over Christmas because I spend a lot of time throughout the year watching TV so I like to take a break! However, there are a few shows and films that I tune into every year.

The Sound of Music is one of my favourite musicals as well as one of my favourite films. I watch this every year on TV when it’s on even though I have the DVD! It’s such an amazing film and I love a good singalong!

This year, we’re copying America (they did a live broadcast starring Carrie Underwood) and doing a live version with Kara Tointon as Maria. I’m skeptical about this but will tune in anyway!

Strictly is my favourite TV show during the winter. It’s my dream to become famous enough to be on it although with my dance background, I’d be cheating slightly! This year I’m excited to see Harry Judd especially in the Christmas special!


As a rugby league fan, this is the biggest year for us ever as we have our first nominee in Kevin Sinfield! I’m trying to persuade all rugby league fans, despite who they support, to vote for Sir Kev on the night! I love watching all the highlights from the year too and seeing all the sportsmen in their suits. Here’s looking at you Greg Rutherford!


I’m so sad that this Christmas will see the last ever Downton Abbey. I will miss the amazing story-lines and extravagant costumes. I really hope Lady Edith will get her happily ever after because Lady Mary should not get it all her way!


The only Christmas film that I like. The Muppets and Michael Caine together is a match-made in heaven. I watch this every year on Christmas Eve with my dad and we still never tire of seeing it!
