6. DAVID JASON LURKS

What’s he planning? And why has he got that disturbing grin on his face? Oh, we can’t see it at this resolution, but we can tell. We can just tell. Brr.

5. GRAHAM NORTON WILL EAT YOUR SOUL

Is this Christmas, or a very, very late Halloween promo? Right now, we aren’t sure.

4. LENNY HENRY KISSES BY FALLING ON TOP OF THE PERSON HE IS TRYING TO KISS

What other possible reason could there be for him falling over after Ms Cotton steps aside at the last moment, eh? He’s a big bloke, too.

3. THE TWO OPPOSITE ENDS OF THE COMEDY QUALITY SPECTRUM CLASH

Isn’t Frank Skinner only on BBC Two, anyway? Also: it is too much to hope that despite the above image, there actually isn’t a Christmas special lined up for Mrs Brown’s Boys? Or, as Michael Legge excellently summed up the show, “FUCK FUCK FUCK POTATO FUCK FUCK”.

2. DOT COTTON DROPS ONE

Well, it snapped Norton out of that demonic possession, anyway.

1. DAVID JASON WINKS AT YOU

This is just outright creepy. We know Del Boy is Britain’s favourite sitcom character and everything, and this Christmas marks David Jason’s return to sitcom, but… well, basically, WAH. We actually had to make an animated version of this, just to prove how disturbing it is.

As if the wink isn’t bad enough, the way he looks both ways with a mischievous grin on his face beforehand… why is he checking the coast is clear? What doesn’t he want anyone but us to see? The more we think about it, the more scared we are. In summary: WE WANT TO GO HOME THIS ISN’T FUN ANY MORE.

Yes, there's a Mrs Brown's Boys Christmas special. It's very popular in Ireland, you know.

I love it. I don't care.

It's not Fearne "Unathorised biography in The Works which recycles huge chunks of an unrelated article I wrote for Offthetelly" Cotton, it's Tess Daly.

I have no idea why Skinner, Kevin Bridges and Lee Mack are in it as they're doing nothing on BBC1 this Christmas. But I like the fact it's the whole BBC1 family (ie, anyone who would turn up).

I'm always getting them two mixed up. Ah well.

One curious omission from that trailer - given that this year's big Christmas day comedy comeback is Absolutely Fabulous, you'd expect to see Jennifer Saunders or Joanna Lumley present in some capacity, either in character or not. Could it be that they're still working on the show, a la the Fools And Horses comeback episode in 2001?
