Following on from the six-part two series which will air next month, The Cockfields will see stars Joe Wilkinson as Simon and Susannah Fielding as his fiancé Esther, travelling back to the Isle of Wight between Christmas and New Year to visit Simon’s ever-doting mother (Sue Johnston), his controlling yet well-meaning stepfather (Gregor Fisher) and his celebrity-obsessed stepbrother (Ben Rufus Green).

Writers Joe Wilkinson and David Earl said,

“Getting to write a Christmas Special is a dream come true for us and we can’t thank Gold enough for being daft enough to let us do it. We can’t wait for you to hang out with the Cockfields again, while we all stuff our faces with sausage rolls and chocolate oranges. Merry Christmas from The Cockfield Family.”

The Cockfields special will air in December and series two of the show starts next month.

Gold also announced the return of its popular ‘Christmas Crackers‘ joke competition.
