Michael always watches Christmas specials and loves them because they bring his family together: “I just love them, I love the sentimentality, and I’m a big family guy… A lot of the people I idolised growing up were part of the Christmas tradition, like Dean Martin. So many artists are deathly afraid of being connected with Christmas. They think it’s soft. I don’t get it. For me, to be able to do this every year, to be invited into people’s homes? It’s marvellous.”

Drew loves embracing traditions like putting food out for Santa: “I used to stay up and put out cookies and milk and wait for the feet to come down the chimney. I always had to be so logical as a kid about stuff, so I kinda knew there was no Santa Claus. That said, I thought JAWS would really be waiting at the end of my swimming pool. I don’t let that hurt Christmas. I’m very emotional and romantic about the Christmas traditions.”

Rob reveals that the Kardashian make some Armenian food to celebrate the holidays: “They make great eggs and my mom makes awesome French toast – a whole big buffet. We’re Armenian, and my sister Kourtney makes this Armenian breakfast called Beeshee. She hands down kills it, but Khloe actually takes it because she can make all kinds of stuff and she makes food for Lamar all the time. She does a great pasta and chicken.”

Jessica has a weird tradition of putting Barbie heads on her tree: “I had Barbies for a minute (short while) but they didn’t really stick around very long. I ended up mutilating them, pulling their heads off, cutting off all their hair, dying them with markers and sticking them on the Christmas tree lights. They’d light up like these demonic heads. I still have the heads. They still go on every year at home.”

Gary and his family always watch the Queen’s speech: ”I don’t think I’ll be getting a Christmas card from the queen! She’s had a great year, though, hasn’t she? It’s a bit of a tradition in our house to watch the queen’s speech, and I think this year will be extra special. The Jubilee was amazing, though – just such a brilliant, special day with some amazing people.”
