Meanwhile the usual suspects will be out in force. Sir Cliff of Richard is doing something special this year. "Hi guys, great," he waffled, "this is, like, going to be so special, right? I'm gonna get a huge tree, yeah? And, like, drop from it singing 'Oh Christmas Tree' yeah? Only then, like, the Shadows will join me, yeah? And, like, we'll rock out into a version of my 'Mistletoe and Wine', yeah?"
