We join Ainsley Hariott and friends in this Christmas special, which will introduce us to new approaches to old favourites!

Ainsley and pal Olly Smith get the fun started with canapes and cocktails, the perfect way to greet guests. Olly sticks around to keep the drinks flowing. 

Stage and screen star Shane Richie joins the fun whilst Ainsley cooks up a Biryani, filled with flavour and a great way to use any left-over Christmas Turkey.  Chef and Ready Steady Cook star Brian Turner takes over the hob to cook up a delicious duck dish. Then Head Judge of Strictly Come Dancing, Shirley Ballas, joins Ainsley and Olly for dessert.
