Suranne Jones, well known for her main role in Gentleman Jack as Anne Lister will take on a very different part as she plays Carole Mackay in Sky’s new yule-tide comedy ‘Christmas Carole’.

Carole Mackay (Jones) is an unashamedly outspoken and wealthy entrepreneur. Her online business selling all things festive has earned her a fortune, as well as the nickname ‘Christmas Carole’.

But her success hasn’t made her a better human being. In fact, it’s made her worse. The truth is that Carole is a monumentally mean person. Positively Scrooge-like. And, just like Ebeneezer, she doesn’t love Christmas at all. But this Christmas Eve, Carole’s past, present and future are about to collide. Will some rather familiar Christmas spirits help her discover the true spirit of Christmas?

If previous Sky Originals such as A Boy Called Christmas are to go by we literally can’t wait for this to drop, however, no details of when Sky’s ‘Christmas Carole’ will air once details are in we’ll post them here.

Christmas Carole will air on Sky and streaming service NOW this Christmas.
