Review

And you thought Not Going Out ended for good last Christmas when hopeless slacker Lee actually did the right thing for once and married the long-suffering Lucy.

But no, everyone is back for a special episode with a festive theme. A year on from the wedding and Lucy (Sally Bretton) is heavily pregnant, three days overdue with her and Lee’s first baby. But the poor woman can’t simply put her feet up and await the birth, she and Lee (Lee Mack) are embroiled in a hold-up at a department store. Their captor is Father Christmas himself.

All of the regulars return, including the estimable Katy Wix as dopey Daisy, and the gag count is as high as ever.

Summary

On Christmas Eve, Lee and Lucy - who is three days overdue with their first baby - find themselves mistakenly caught up in a robbery at a local department store. Alongside them are Lee's dad, Frank, dressed as Santa's elf, Daisy and neighbours Toby and Anna. Locked in and faced with a dangerous armed robber wearing a Father Christmas mask, they have to come up with an escape plan. But will Lee's poorly conceived ideas get them into even more trouble? One-off Christmas special of the comedy, starring Lee Mack and Sally Bretton.
