How will our presenters be spending their Christmas?

I will be spending Christmas with my wife and kids at home.  Christmas is special as we have two to celebrate.

My wife is Norwegian and, in common with much of northern Europe, they celebrate Christmas on the 24th with the big meal and presents etc. We then do it all over again on the 25th…lucky kids!

It's going to be strange this year as my niece Louise (who is also my best friend!) sadly won't be here. We have not missed a Christmas together in her 30 years on the planet. Still, she is coming home for a mini one the week before. So this year it will be the immediate family, my brother and my brother-in-law. So basically it's me and six men!

Having said that, now that the kids are older there could be a couple of girlfriends popping in as well. Quite worrying when two of your sons insist they will never ever spend Christmas anywhere other than home even when they're old! I suppose I should take it as a compliment. I do so love it though – all the food, pressies and hilarity in the evening when the games start.

This Christmas I'll see as much of my family as possible but Christmas Day will just be the four of us. No doubt we'll be awake by 4am and will stay awake all day until way past midnight!

Well, I have absolutely no plans as yet apart from being with my beautiful children and mum. My son will be coming home from University in Wales so I will simply be savouring every minute of his Christmas back at home. I've been missing him massively and welcome even the inevitable dirty laundry which will accompany him!

As it’s also my birthday on Christmas Day I always spend it at home with Tracey, Ali, Jack and Toby the Beardie. My brother Darren usually pops in to remind me how old I am and we take it in turns between grandparents to join us. This year it’s Tracey’s dad and his wife.

A family get-together on Christmas Day, then we're all going to the races at Kempton Park on Boxing Day and hopefully to the Rugby at Twickenham on the 27th.

Christmas for me is always a family affair and split between my mother-in-law's and my sister's house. We all live quite close and they are both better cooks than me, so it works out really well.

I will be spending Christmas this year with family and friends, eating lots, drinking lots and a little exercise. I am a massive fan of seafood and on Christmas Eve we start the festivities with a seafood platter from our local fishmonger and a bottle of Champagne.

Christmas itself has always been very different for me as I spent many Christmases working overseas when I was a tour guide and over the course of about five years I spent Christmases in Switzerland, Austria, France, Holland and even Weston-Super-Mare! Have to say, my favourite has to be Switzerland, it is exactly as you would imagine it – candlelit classical churches, snow-filled rolling hills, cosy half-timbered houses and fresh mountain air.Truly that has to be one of my Christmas highlights.

These days, now that I have settled in London, a typical Christmas is more likely to be drinks and a Christmas concert in London with friends on the run up to Christmas. Then a drive down to Bristol on Christmas Day. I love driving on Christmas Day. The motorway is empty and the radio is playing loads of Christmassy songs and messages. It's just a little tradition of mine!

Once I get to Bristol I will hand over the sack of pressies (most of them for my niece Jasmine!) then have Christmas lunch with my family. Because my dad is Jamaican and my mum is Welsh, we have, let's say, a "fusion" lunch which consists of Jerk Chicken, traditional turkey, rice and peas, roast potatoes and veg, all followed by my dad's favourite – Christmas pudding! My mum does lots of baking so there is always a mountain of cakes and goodies – slightly lethal!

    Happy Christmas to all at my favourite store – QVC. You are all lovely. The aftersales service is second to none and so friendly. By the way I ordered a luxury L’occitaine box of goodies on the 16th and it arrived 10.00am on the 20th. Much quicker than normal. Many thanks and all the best. Keep safe in this awful weather.
