Get ready to deck the halls with boughs of Holly as viewers are going to see a lot more of Holly Willoughby this holiday season because she's landed her own Christmas TV special.

The presenting duo will front Take off With Bradley and Holly, which sees them gift lucky studio audience members with the chance to win the trip of a lifetime to Lapland. Think Surprise, Surprise but with a festive twist.

Announcing the special, BBC shared: "The show will be jam packed with games, incredible surprises, celebrity guests and much more leading up to a spectacular end of show finale."

Sounds like a right Christmas cracker!

Captioning the post, she said: "Spent a dreamy afternoon with this bundle of joy! First day filming for #takeoff @bbc ... things are looking good @bradderswalsh ... can't wait for the next one xxx."

However, the broadcaster has yet to announce when the special will air over Christmas.
