Text Santa - Watch This Sunday


Christmas is a time for giving, so why not come in out of the cold and warm your cockles by a fire, safe in the knowledge that, by simply sending a text, you could be making a real difference to someone’s life.

Join Ant & Dec as they take part in ITV’s ‘Text Santa’, a new charity fundraising variety show that promises amazing entertainment that celebrates the spirit of goodwill and good fortune at Christmas.


Sunday 11th December – 9:30pm-10:30pm ITV1

Ant & Dec will appear as guests on Sunday’s show, where they will be doing something that their fans have always wanted to see!  To find out what it could possibly be, you will have to tune in to the show.

The show will also feature a performance from Pixie Lott, actor Jim Carter - in character as Downton Abbey butler Carson - Harry Hill and The X Factor's Tulisa Contostavlos. There is also a unique rendition of Santa Claus Is Coming to Town, with Torvill and Dean, Diversity and the Wanted


Saturday 24th December - Christmas Eve – 7:30pm-10:00pm ITV1

The show will return on Christmas Eve and Ant & Dec will be joined by Holly Willoughby to host the show.

Tune in to see comedy favourite Paddy McGuinness’ Panto challenge, where he will pop up in as many pantos as possible across the country, hilarious surprises from Britain’s best loved soap stars and an exclusive performance from the cast of The Only Way is Essex, who’ll be adding to the festive fun performing their brand new Christmas single, a cover of Wham!’s classic ‘Last Christmas’ and much, much more.
