Spicks and Specks annual Christmas romp airs this Friday night with a long list of musical names and mayhem.
In previous years this has actually aired on Christmas night. This year it has to compete with Carols by Candlelight -a big ask.
Key guests include Jimeoin, Jimmy Barnes, Sia and Denise Scott, while Brian Cadd also makes a white-beard appearance in a rather red suit. Perfect casting.
A local Ripponlea school donned elves outfits to perform some festive tunes.
It airs 8:30pm Friday on ABC1.
