In a year as bleak and as difficult as 2020, goodness knows we all need some light-hearted silliness to cheer us all up.
Luckily, Gordon Ramsay, Gino D'Acampo and Fred Sirieix will be bringing smiles to our faces once more, as ITV have announced they're taking their legendary Road Trip series on the road once more this year for a festive special.
Titled Desperately Seeking Santa, the banter-fuelled threesome are heading to Lapland in a trip headed up by Gordon.
Their mission will see Gino try and find Father Christmas so he can deliver a letter to him which has been written by his eight-year-old daughter, Mia.
And naturally, things won't be as quite as straight-forward as we would hope.
As well as meeting the big man Santa Claus himself, the trio will be sampling a traditional Finnish sauna, and feasting on reindeer meat with Lapland's indigenous Sami people.
Elsewhere, Italian stallion Gino will be giving some top tips for those tackling the turkey over the festive season.
The synopsis for the programme reads: "After Gino led them to the deserts of Morocco for last year's mis-adventure, Gordon is determined that they celebrate the season properly this time, so has arranged a boys' trip away before the madness of a family Christmas kicks in, to the ultimate winter wonderland and the official home of Santa."
It's clear the three of them have as much fun making the show as we do watching it, with Fred describing their journeys as "trips of a lifetime."
"I'd love to go out and film another season and visit new places, but I think it'll be a while before we can do that," he told The Guardian. "I've never been to Thailand, Laos, Cambodia or Vietnam, so they would be incredible to visit. I'd also love to go back to South America, where I travelled when I was younger."
Desperately Seeking Santa will air on Wednesday 16th December on ITV at 9pm.
