Fans of Coronation Street, Emmerdale, The Chase and other ITV shows will notice a special change over the holiday season as the Christmas line-up is unveiled.

Festive specials of traditional favourites will air between Christmas Even and Boxing Day along with feature-length versions of new programmes like The Larkins.

ITV bosses have also announced a major change this year affecting how viewers can watch their TV treats, including Tipping Point, Saturday Night Takeaway Presents, Celebrity Catchphrase and Billy Connolly: My Absolute Pleasure.
