The majority of British adults watch four hours of repeats on TV every week, according to research last month. Over the Christmas period that could easily jump to four hours a day as repeats of our favourite films show on every channel.

On TV this Christmas are the ‘Christmas’ Christmas classics like The Grinch, The Muppet Christmas Carol and Love Actually, and then the perennial un-Christmassy but nevertheless Christmassy classics including Casablanca and ET.

Christmas TV staples Elf and It’s a Wonderful Life sadly don’t feature in this year’s terrestrial schedule.

We bring you twelve films of season’s repeatings coming to a television near you this Christmas
