Michael McIntyre's Big Show

Series 5 - Episode 5



The format may not be exactly groundbreaking, but its enjoyable mix of conventional family entertainment, surprises, emotional moments and occasionally surreal comedy make this a perfect way to kick off the festive fortnight. It’s no wonder that it was the most watched programme on Christmas Day last year.

In 2018, McIntyre gave an audience member the best Christmas present ever, when he was invited to sing and dance with his idol, Kylie Minogue. This time it’s Robbie Williams who gets some of the audience up on the stage of the London Palladium to sing with him before performing Winter Wonderland. Handing over his mobile for the Send to All section is Ian Wright, who says he isn’t nervous although the levels of sweat on his head suggest otherwise.

There’s another Big Show on Christmas Day, when Michael wakes up Strictly Scrooge Craig Revel Horwood in a special Midnight Gameshow. How brave is that?


Robbie Williams surprises some karaoke-singing members of the audience with special renditions of his classic hits in Robbie-oke, and gives a performance of Winter Wonderland. Plus, Ian Wright hands over his phone for Send To All, and three young brothers get the surprise of their lives when they take part in an Escape Room, but find themselves on stage at the London Palladium to become the Unexpected Stars of the Show.
