The TV Christmas special has been making a bit of a comeback recently and this year is no different. Step aside Mariah Carey because this Christmas might just belong to Ted Lasso‘s very own Rebecca Walton. That’s right, Hannah Waddingham is returning to her stage roots as she and Apple TV Plus bring us a brand new 2023 Christmas Special. In this Goggler exclusive, we sat down with the star of Hannah Waddingham: Home For Christmas for a conversation about her song choices for the special, her dresses, her Christmas traditions, and her own personal connection to the Coliseum Theatre in London.

Hannah Waddingham: Home For Christmas drops on Apple TV Plus on Wednesday, November 21.

Recorded live at The Coliseum in London, one of London’s oldest and most beautiful theaters, the one-hour special will feature Emmy Award winner Hannah Waddingham ringing in the season with musical performances of beloved Christmas classics. Joining Waddingham on stage will include Sam Ryder, Luke Evans, Leslie Odom Jr., Phil Dunster and more special guests, with additional performers including the English National Opera, the London Gay Men’s Chorus, The Fabulous Lounge Swingers and an 18-piece band. Along the way, Hannah shares her personal journey to this magical moment with anecdotes and memories about her own holiday experiences.

Hannah Waddingham: Home for Christmas is produced by Done + Dusted (“Beauty & The Beast: A 30th Celebration,” John Legend’s “A Legendary Christmas with John and Chrissy,” “The Little Mermaid Live!,” London Olympic opening and closing ceremonies), the same team behind Apple’s hit Mariah Carey’s Magical Christmas Special. Executive producers are Waddingham, Katy Mullan, Moira Ross, Raj Kapoor, and Nick Todisco. The holiday special was directed by BAFTA Award winner Hamish Hamilton (Oscars, Grammys, Super Bowl halftime show, London Olympics opening and closing ceremonies).
