Brits excited for 'under the radar' show that BBC have confirmed to air on Christmas day

Brits excited for 'under the radar' show that BBC have confirmed to air on Christmas day

Have you seen it?

We're well into December, which means many of us are already looking to the TV listings for Christmas Day.

After we've all opened our presents and filled our faces with food and drink, it's time to settle in front of the box for hours on end.

Usually, this special ritual involves re-runs of classic films and series, like Toy Story and Only Fools and Horses.

And while that is almost certainly the case this year, there's also room for a few new bits - one of which is the hit series Ghosts.

For those of you who aren't that familiar with the show, it follows a young couple - played by Charlotte Ritchie and Kiell Smith-Bynoe - who take on an old country mansion.

However, after Alison (Ritchie) has an accident, she starts seeing the spirits that still walk the property's halls. And hilarity ensues.

Check out the trailer:

But it would appear that despite the series boasting a very loyal fanbase, it's not as big as some much more mediocre shows are.

Sadly for many, Ghosts is set to come to an end on Christmas Day, with the final episode part of the festive line-up.

And regular viewers can't believe the lack of publicity the series gets.

"Ghosts going under the radar one here. Absolutely brilliant show," said one fan.

Another commented: "Ghosts is so so underrated it’s hilarious."

"Can’t believe Ghosts (UK version) is ending at Christmas, by far my favourite BBC show," put a third.

While someone else added: "BBC's Ghosts is so underrated.

"The fact that the Horrible Histories cast wrote the show themselves is so amazing."

Speaking ahead of the finale, Luarence Rickard, who plays Robin the Caveman in the series, said it felt like the right time.

He said: "I think we wanted to be able to end it on our own terms, and give it a definite ending, and a definite send-off for the characters.

"But also, we were doing this series… We knew we were doing the last couple of backstories in terms of how the ghosts came to the house.

"Carrying on, we'd have to do a slightly different format to the show."

He added: "It was one of those complete head-over-heart decisions, really. Inevitably, television goes one way, where things become less popular, and disappear, and get cancelled, and are replaced in the public perception by something new.

"We were really keen to not start making episodes that were less good than the ones we've done so far. There's always that fear."
