12 Stars of Christmas
Magnum Media / Travesty Media for Channel 4, 19 to 23 December 2016 (5 episodes in 1 series)
Alan Carr and three invited guests answer questions. The questions come from celebrities, hiding behind the doors of Carr's Advent calendar. So far, a bit similar to Chris Moyles' Quiz Night.
Each of the celebrities plays for a section of the audience. Before each commercial break, someone from each section dives into a huge pool of balls. In the pool are some presents, and whoever comes out first with a present wins it for their section of the audience.
At the end of the game, the winning celebrity (or celebrities, if it's a draw) dives into the pool to find the one present. This stops a number generator and picks someone from the audience, and this person wins a holiday somewhere nice.
Light and fluffy, Alan Carr is his usual cheeky self. It's an enjoyable show, but didn't stick long in the memory.
