Sue revealed she had been sworn to secrecy over her game show debut and encouraged people to watch the show on Christmas Day.

“I have had to keep it secret up until now, which has been a real challenge," said Sue. "Of course people will need to tune in to see how I got on.”

Walsh, perhaps better known for his roles in Coronation Street, Doctor Who and The Chase, took over hosting for the festive edition. Previous presenters have included Les Dawson and Lily Savage.

Along with Carr, Perkins and Fox on the panel will be boxer Amir Khan, McFly singer Danny Jones, and TV presenter Anita Rani.

Blankety Blank: Christmas Special will air at 7pm on Christmas Day on BBC One.
