Christmas Clash! Downton Abbey And EastEnders Set To Go Head-To-Head On Christmas Day

The Xmas TV schedule is filling up!

As the festive holiday draws closer so does the decision over what to watch on the TV on Christmas Day.

And whilst some of our favourite shows will nicely slot into place to give us endless hours of entertainment, it appears that Downton Abbey and EastEnders doesn't fit into that category...

Having avoided a clash with BBC One's drama Call The Midwife, ITV1's hit period drama, Downton Abbey now looks set to clash with the beeb's popular soap EastEnders.

It is believed the iconic theme tune for EastEnders will begin at 8.45pm, the same time that the familiar tune of Downton Abbey will start on ITV.

However, ITV's soap, Coronation Street will also face the same issue when it clashes with Call The Midwife when both shows will air at 7.30pm on Christmas Day.

As viewers are left to make a tough decision over which programmes they will record and which ones to watch in real time, details of Downton Abbey's Christmas special have been revealed.

A statement released recently revealed: "It sees Lord and Lady Grantham and family heading for a summer break in The Highlands of Scotland, leaving most of their servants back at home."

The special will also see the return of the "young, headstrong Lady Rose, who was sent home in the last episode of series three after her dalliance with a married man", whilst:

"Lady Edith discovers that newspaper editor Michael Gregson also happens to be on holiday in Scotland and may not be there just for the sketching and fishing. Matthew and Mary disagree about Mr Gregson’s motives towards unlucky-in-love Edith."
