Don't Leave The Sofa Tomorrow - The TV Schedule Is Classic After Classic

Had enough of gorging yourself yet? Feeling bloated and lazy?

You should get up off your arse and do something about it - but not tomorrow.

Tomorrow is for sitting on the sofa all day.

Why? Well, because it's still Christmas (sort of) and the old gogglebox is serving us up a big festive treat.

For the relatively early risers among you, Bean will be blundering about from 9.45am on Channel 5.

Right after, the station airs Groundhog day from 11.35am; no doubt you will be able to empathise with Bill Murray's character if you have been sat on the sofa eating chocolate and cheese every day for the past two weeks.

If this de javu is all too cabin fever inducing, then you can flick over to ITV at 12.05pm for The Mummy, starring Brendan Fraser, Rachel Weisz and John Hannah.

However, while this should on the whole be a veeeery relaxed day, you will have some big choice to make from here on in as the terrestrial telly channels vie for your attention.

At 1pm BBC Two will be showing the 1958 version of Dunkirk, but if you're more in the mood for poultry-based peril, BBC One is airing animated classic Chicken Run from 1.15pm.

Meanwhile, the repetition of Groundhog Day comes to an end on Channel 5, only for Bill Murray to resurface once again in Ghostbusters II.

Channel 4 starts to muscle in on the act at 2.10pm with fantasy adventure, Hugo. If you're like me, then you may never have heard of it until now, but it's directed by Martin Scorsese and is very well reviewed, so may be worth a punt if you want a timeout from all the nostalgia.

Alternatively, you can join Steven Spielberg and Harrison Ford on BBC One for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull at 2.35pm - the fourth instalment of the series.

After that, there is a window of respite in the filmathon that is your Saturday. So stretch your legs, maybe stand outside for a little bit - you could even go on that run you've been thinking about? Thought not.

Having aborted your mission, you can get back on the sofa from 6.15pm and switch to ITV for Apollo 13 - you know that one with Tom Hanks, about that aborted mission?

The day then draws to a close with a barnstorming hat-trick.

On BBC One at 7.50pm is super-hero film, Ant-Man, starring Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas.

Channel 4 is then the place to end the day, bringing home the laughs with Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues at 9pm followed by The Inbetweeners 2 at 11.20pm.

After a long hard day of doing fuck all, you may now rest.
