Glenister enjoying holidays at home
Philip Glenister has revealed he is beginning his new year in South Africa filming a new series of Sky thriller Mad Dogs.
The Ashes To Ashes star admitted it was difficult spending time away from his wife and two daughters, so he was looking forward to celebrating Christmas at home with them.
Philip said: "We're going to do a third series of Mad Dogs out in Cape Town in South Africa in January.
"This year's been quite busy but one can't complain in these tough austere times. But it has meant being away from home quite a bit, so what's been nice is I have been home, because we finished the last one in August, so I've been able to stay at home and annoy my wife."
He joked: "But I think she's getting fed up with me, I'm getting under her feet."
The 48-year-old actor revealed he was hoping to enjoy some fine wine over Christmas.
He said: "I'd quite like a wine decanter, that's all I want. Something for the grape."
