This new, revamped version of summer 2008 hit 50 Ways To Leave Your Lover features half previously seen material and half brand new seasonal fare for fans of mistletoe, mulled wine and chestnuts roasting on an open fire.

The cast of 50 Ways To Leave Your Lover At Christmas is led by Ralf Little, star of television comedies including The Royle Family and Two Pints Of Lager And A Packet Of Crisps.
