The Strictly final, Bridget Jones’s Diary and Sabrina goes from chilling to Christmassy.
THE SPOOKY-YET-FESTIVE TEEN DRAMA
The Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina: A Midwinter’s Tale on Netflix
If, like me, you binged the whole first series of Netflix’s Sabrina reboot, you’ll have been waiting for this day for almost two months. Because what says Christmas more than a witch coven singing pagan carols and telling each other the most terrifying ghost stories they can think of? Well, how about a demon mum coming to the mortal world to claim a baby as her own and a Santa murder? Happy Christmas and bright solstice, sisters!
AN OLD FRIEND
Bridget Jones’s Diary, Friday 9pm, ITV2
It is an unwritten rule that if you’re at home and Bridget Jones comes on the telly, you must, in the name of her big pants, watch it. This is especially true at Christmas, because you’re probably going to be drunk anyway and will enjoy it that much more. Get your bunny costume on, pour yourself a massive white wine and cook up a batch of blue soup, and sink into the sofa for the rest of the evening.
A SOURCE OF ETERNAL JOY
Elf, Sunday 6pm, ITV
That same rule applies to Elf, by the way. A couple of hours spent with the happiest, tallest, most brilliant Christmas elf in New York is time very much well spent.
THE STRICTLY FINAL
Strictly Come Dancing, Saturday 6:30pm, BBC One
After what must seem like an age for the celebrities, Strictly Come Dancing finally comes to a head this weekend, which will see one of the final four couples crowned as winners. The final decision comes down to a public vote only, so it’s unlikely to be Ashley and Pasha, who have found themselves in the dance-off for three weeks on the trot. If you ask me, it’s between Stacey and Faye, both of whom have been on an emotional journey since the beginning of the show, and both can trot out a tango like nobody’s business.
AND SOMETHING TO LOOK FORWARD TO…
Emma Watson has posted an on-set picture of the Little Women cast, igniting our excitement for the upcoming Greta Gerwig film once again. Watson plays Meg, with Saoirse Ronan, Florence Pugh and Eliza Scanlen as the other March sisters. And that’s not all – the one and only Meryl Streep will become Aunt March while Laura Dern takes on the role of the March matriarch, Marmee. But we’ve still got a long wait ahead of us – it’s not due to be released until Christmas 2019.
