Channel 4 hire Taylor Herring to promote live Christmas event.
LONDON, Wednesday 7th December 2011: One soon-to-be-married couple will for the first time, bring their two extended families together this Christmas in Channel 4’s brand new, live, entertainment event, Home for the Holidays.
Can they survive their own family 24 hours a day for a week to win a potential half a million pounds?
Hosted live each night by household favourite and family man, Vernon Kay, the week-long entertainment cracker will follow the families festive frolics as they face tinsel temptations and yuletide games in a bid to win a fantastic Christmas present – up to half a million pounds.
Just like households up and down the country, this family will need to live together, put up with each other and ultimately bond under one raucous roof in a magical Christmas country manor house which is not quite what it seems. With tantalising twists and unexpected turns, warm Christmas cheer and lots of wonderful festive surprises, treats and celebrity guests, the hilarious antics of this one family will be put to the ultimate test at the most magical time of year.
Can the young couple keep everyone together as they face a Festive family experience like nothing ever seen on television before? If you think Christmas with your nearest and dearest is a challenge, wait till you see what’s waiting for this family in Home for the Holidays.
Vernon Kay said: “This is gonna be the perfect show to help build up the excitement of the festive season. It’s a whole lot of fun as we try and give away half a million pounds.
I’m also really pleased to be going back to Channel 4 where I had almost seven years of pure joy working on T4. I cannot wait!”
Commissioning editor for C4 entertainment, Syeda Irtizaali said: “We’re excited to broadcast a festive entertainment series that captures the true essence of Christmas for families up and down the country. We’re also delighted to bring back Vernon to Channel 4. He is the perfect host to bring this together with warmth, sparkle and good humour.”
Executive producer Will Macdonald said: “Christmas and family is never quite the Bing Crosby-inspired combination we all dream of. Anyone, like Wizzard, who wishes “It Could Be Christmas Every Day” should watch this show – they may want to be careful what they wish for…
Home for the Holidays airs from Sunday 18th December on Channel 4 and airs LIVE nightly until Christmas Eve, Saturday 24th December.
Home For The Holidays is produced by Monkey, a division of NBCUniversal International Television Production, for Channel 4.
