Sir Paul McCartney has told his fans he will be eating and drinking “too much” in a jovial message shared on Christmas Day.

The singer was among the many celebrities taking to social media to wish their followers a merry Christmas, while others shared insights into their own festive celebrations.

Along with an old picture of himself in a seasonal costume, Sir Paul wrote on Instagram: “Have a brilliant Christmas everyone! Happy Chrissy!

“Don’t eat and drink too much! I know I will, but that’s no excuse for you. I hope you enjoy all your presents and I hope you remember the true meaning of Christmas, which is love and peace and being good to each other – so HAPPY CHRISTMAS! #PaulMcCartney #HappyChristmas #MerryChristmas.”

Countdown star Rachel Riley wished her fans a merry Christmas from Goa, India.

Wearing a T-shirt with the words “Santa is a Man Utd fan”, Riley posed next to a road sign in the sunny location.

She wrote: “Merry Christmas!!!!! 7592km away from Blighty but thinking of everyone at home. Lots of love folks, I hope you and yours have a great day xxxx.”

She added that she was having “curry for breakfast”.

Reese Witherspoon sent “holiday wishes for a day filled with love and laughter – the important things that remind us how blessed we all are” to her 15 million Instagram followers.
