The Larkins Christmas special is heading to ITV on Christmas Day at 9pm and will be a Christmas TV highlight.

Thirty years after The Darling Buds was screened, ITV has produced a new version of the H.E. Bates books called The Larkins.

Star Bradley Walsh first announced that there was going to be a Christmas episode on The One Show. He revealed at the time that he was filming the episode in Kent.

“We’re making the Christmas Larkins in Kent,” he said. “We’ve got all the snow – honestly, it’s amazing, absolutely tremendous. Brilliant, brilliant.”

‘The Larkins’ Christmas special release date

The Larkins Christmas special will be shown on ITV on Christmas Day at 9pm. If you can’t wait that long it will be available on the ITV Hub from 7am on Christmas Day. Check out our Christmas TV guide for a run down of all the best shows over the festive season.

‘The Larkins’ Christmas special cast

All the main cast are back for the festive episode. Bradley Walsh will once again play Pop Larkin, the character famously played by David Jason in The Darling Buds of May. Joanna Scanlan will return as Ma Larkin, with Sabrina Bartlett as Mariette. While Tok Stephen will be back as Cedric “Charley” Charlton.

  • Whatever happened to the cast of The Daring Buds of May

What’s the plot?

ITV teases: “In the village all the talk is of the pantomime and an ongoing spate of burglaries — Miss Pilchester, the Normans and Johnny Delamere are amongst the victims.  

“Whilst PC Harness applies his limited gifts to finding the culprit, Mariette and Charley take their love to the next level…

“Pop and Ma are overjoyed to have the pair back for Christmas, but when Charley’s parents arrive to meet the Larkin clan, and the entire village is left without lighting and heating following a power cut, chaos descends on the Larkins farm.”

Talking about how the series shows families having a nice time, Bradley told us: “It’s great to see a family actually getting on, as we seem to see a lot of miserable families on TV these days! This is absolutely the right thing at the moment. We could learn an awful lot from the Larkins!”
