Mary, Mel and Sue's Big Christmas Thank You: Everything you need to know

Ready, Set, SURPRISE!

Mary, Mel and Sue's Big Christmas Thank You is a 'very special' one-off show due to air this Christmas that will reunite Great British Bake Off alumni Mary Berry, Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins.

Described as a 'joyful Christmas treat' the Christmas special will see the much missed former faces of the Bake Off back together once again for 'their comeback show' - but this time, they won't be baking.

Mary, Mel and Sue's Surprise Party will see the trio head to South Wales to throw a magnificent Christmas party as a surprise for the much deserving – and totally unsuspecting – town residents.

The town visited by Mary, Mel and Sue has experienced tough times over the last few years, seeing both their local school and post office closing. However, despite these blows to the community, they have stilled managed to pull together to open a community centre which is described as 'a lifeline for young children and elderly pensioners alike.'
