Fresh from his success on Strictly Come Dancing on the BBC this year, Daniel is an inescapable presence across UK and Irish channels this festive season.

First he'll sing 'I Have a Dream' on ABBA's Christmas Party on Christmas Eve on ITV which also boasts guests including Susan Boyle, Scouting for Girls, Union J and Corrie's Shayne Ward.

On Christmas Day UTV Ireland will be airing all six episodes of the excellent Daniel & Majella's B&B Road Trip back to back from 12.30pm.

Lest you have Daniel withdrawals by New Year, he's starring in the Ireland West Music Television (SKY 266) Christmas special on the night.

Meanwhile, he'll also have mastered the skill of bi-location to appear in a New Year's Eve special of his long running TG4 series Opry An Iúir at 10.45pm.

Daniel will be celebrating the work of Brendan Shine who celebrates 50 years in show business this year.
