Mrs Brown's Boys Christmas Special BBC1, 10pm Brendan O'Carroll returns as the daft-butdoting Irish matriarch for the first of two festive episodes - and, as usual, there is mayhem in the Brown household. Grandad has got it into his head that the house is haunted, Rory hopes to improve his looks by undergoing plastic surgery and Cathy continues her search for the right man by getting herself an internet date. As for Agnes, her annual battles with the decorations may well be over as Buster has bought her a special tree. What could possibly go wrong? Panto Shane a'r Belen Aur S4C, 6.30pm Wythdeg saith o gapiau dros Gymru a 58 cais - y mwyaf gan unrhyw chwaraewr yn hanes rygbi Cymru.

Mae'n stori dylwyth teg ac yn nawr mae stori Shane yn dod yn fyw mewn pantomeim arbennig.

The Highway Rat BBC1, 4.45pm What would Christmas telly be without a lavish animation to brighten up the schedules? Nowhere, we reckon. This year's focuses on the titular character, a ravenous rodent that craves buns, biscuits and all sweet things. As he tears along the highway on the lookout for sugary treats to steal, his sweet tooth leads him toward a sticky end. Rob Brydon narrates the lively comedy, which is based on the book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, while David Tennant, Nina Sosanya, Tom Hollander and Frances de la Tour are among the vocal talent.
