The start of December had many of us fetching Christmas decorations from the attic, putting up trees and sticking on a festive film to watch with a glass of mulled wine.

But those who went to watch Christmas classic The Grinch on Netflix over the weekend were shocked to find it had been removed from the streaming platform on 1st December.

Not ideal timing, Netflix!

The 2000 film starring Jim Carrey (official name, How The Grinch Stole Christmas) had been on Netflix since summer, but disappeared on Sunday - much to everyone's disappointment. Did we mention it's Christmas classic?!

Naturally, Christmas lovers were disappointed by the update and took to Twitter to express their fury.

Honestly, the passion...

"The grinch has been on Netflix since July?? And now it's December 1st they've took it off??? Is this an actual joke??? CHRISTMAS IS CANCELLED," fumed one person.

"Wtf are Netflix doing they've removed the grinch and love actually??? It's 1st December and you've ruined Christmas," vented another.

"@NetflixUK how come you guys have taken The Grinch off Netflix on the 1st December? It was on there yesterday. I dont think the Grinch stole Christmas, you guys have," another quipped.

"The grinch been taken off Netflix !!!! Christmas is CANCELLED," agreed a fourth.

Netflix, we implore you to sort this out asap. Give us The Grinch!

In the mean time though, Netflix has launched a delectable selection of six new festive movies for us to warm our hearts as we mainline mince pies.

Film to hit the platform include The Knight Before Christmas (Vanessa Hudgens), Holiday In The Wild (Kristin Davis), Let It Snow (Kiernan Shipka), animated offering Klaus, Holiday Rush (Romany Malco), and - saving the best until last - A Christmas Prince: The Royal Baby, the sequel to last year's much-praised royal rom-com.

There's enough to keep us going all December we think.
