Kirstie and Phil’s Perfect Christmas


Got craft inclinations, want to save money or just fancy some new festive ideas? Then get in the spirit of Christmas by making and baking some seasonal treats - from your own baubles to a snowman pinata and even a herb wreath

Kirstie Allsopp and Phil Spencer take off their property hats and replace them with Santa ones this week, with new series Kirstie & Phil's Perfect Christmas.

The first episode airs tonight (8pm on Channel 4) and it sees them sharing their tips and tricks on throwing the ultimate Christmas bash. Whether you’re hosting an evening cocktail affair, family extravaganza or New Year’s knees-up, Kirstie and Phil will show you how.

Keeping with these frugal times, Kirstie gets arts and crafty in her kitchen, showing off her home-making skills with her stunning wreath and ideas for personalised presents. Meanwhile, bargain-savvy sidekick Phil will be busy scouring the country for the best food, drink, gifts and decorations around.

Get ready for shabby chic trimmings, frivolous food, magnificent turkey and Champagne sculptures, all served with a good dollop of cosy Kirstie and Phil Christmas magic.
