Hosted by Myleene Klass and presenter duo Sam and Mark, the programme will be set in a Christmas Grotto studio where the presenters will be joined by children of all ages and celebrities including Union J, Natalie Cassidy, Mark Wright and Jeff Brazier, who have been road-testing many of the toys on sale this Christmas.
Viewers will be in with the chance of winning a sleigh full of toys and, in addition, a big donation will be delivered to a top UK charity, helping to make a magical Christmas for those who really need it. The programme is being produced in-house by Channel 5′s production department 5Production and is sponsored by Littlewoods.com. The executive producer is Simon Proctor.
Greg Barnett, Channel 5′s commissioning editor of entertainment, daytime and soaps, said: “This show is the perfect way to kick-start Christmas – it’s a festive, fun-filled two hours of telly featuring fantastic kids, great guests and sack loads of surprises – and who better than Myleene, Sam and Mark to guide us through the mayhem?”
Simon Proctor added: “We hope this show will encapsulate that unique Christmas feeling, bringing together children, toys and games current and past along with star guests and a few surprises.”
