Phillip Schofield is back on a mission to find the best festive gifts this year – with the help of a few famous faces – in How to Spend It Well at Christmas.
In the first of three new episodes, Phillip tested out gifts and gadgets with Eddie ‘The Eagle’ Edwards, Claire Balding and the cast of Corrie.
And the second part – focusing on children’s toys and games, and airing on Tuesday 3rd December – features a celebrity couple who have both been making headlines recently.
While Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy is riding high as top scorer in the Premier League, Rebekah Vardy will be making her first television appearance since her well publicised spat with fellow footballer’s wife Coleen Rooney, as the pair test out board games for Christmas.
Rebekah was at the centre of a media storm earlier this year when Coleen accused her of leaking stories to the press, a claim Rebekah has vehemently denied.
Coleen claimed that someone viewing her private Instagram snaps was informing a newspaper of the contents – and apparently narrowed down the possible culprits to Rebekah, leading to the now infamous revelation “It’s…. Rebekah Vardy’s account”.
The ensuing drama had Twitter in meltdown, earning Coleen the nickname #Wagatha Christie thanks to her detective efforts as the two footballer’s wives publicly traded blows.
But Rebekah looks to be putting the controversy behind her as she prepares for a Christmas of family boardgames rather than online cat and mouse.
Stacey Solomon will also be on hand this week, bravely helping children test fancy dress costumes, while Phillip meets racing driver Billy Monger for a race of the remote controlled variety.
How To Spend It Well with Phillip Schofield is on ITV on Tuesday 3rd December at 8pm
