The Brockman family will be reuniting after a three-year hiatus for a special Christmas episode of the hit television comedy Outnumbered.

Stars Hugh Dennis, Claire Skinner, Tyger Drew-Honey, Daniel Roche and Ramona Marquez will resume their roles as the family of five for the new 40-minute episode on BBC.

Set on Boxing Day, the Brockmans will face all sorts of problems, from the car to the Second World War, as they try to take on a special mission for Grandad.

Dennis, who plays grumbling father Pete, said: "I can't wait to re-join our TV nucleus and what better place to experience the full joy of family life than stuck in the family car."

Skinner, who will be picking up her role as frazzled mum Sue, added: "I am so happy to be back dipping into the Brockmans' lives again - it is like putting on a big comfy jumper."

Created by Andy Hamilton and Guy Jenkin, guest stars on the special programme will include Daisy Edgar-Jones (Cold Feet), Ruth Madeley (The Level), Mark Benton (The Halcyon), Katherine Jakeways (Tracey Ullman), Martin Trenaman (PhoneShop) and Miles Jupp (Rev).
