“On Christmas Day we are always at my mum and dad’s house. In fact, we had our first Christmas away last year, where we weren’t at my mum and dads. I think it was the first time my mum had not made a roast dinner in 45 years. She loved it. I did miss not being at home last year; I really like being at home because I never get to go home.
"We wake up and open our presents straight away. Some people don’t do that. They have presents in the afternoon, which is weird I think. We do presents straight away and then have a big family breakfast and everyone goes their separate ways for a few hours. I will usually help my mum cook and my dad will set the table - he’s quite good at curating flowers and tables. My sister is there, my niece is there, my brother, his girlfriend, their kids, a few dogs - so it’s quite full on. We maybe go to the pub or for a big walk with the dogs. Then we come back, have a big lunch and then everyone watches TV. It’s the perfect day.”
