Ronnie Corbett the one for Christmas

Comedian Ronnie Corbett is back on the BBC this Christmas.

To celebrate his 80th birthday, Ronnie Corbett will host The One Ronnie as celebrity friends help him out in this all star sketch show. This will be the first time that Ronnie has fronted a show like this for the BBC since the death of his comedy partner.

Ronnie Barker had been his comedy partner since the early 70s, until his death in October 2005. The Two Ronnies show comprised of sketches, songs and parodies. The show was watched by millions and landed several Christmas specials. Corbett recently attended the unveiling of a bronze statue of Ronnie Barker.
