The Jonathan Ross Show

here will be lots of festive fun on the Christmas Special of The Jonathan Ross Show.

Jonathan will be chatting to one of the biggest names in show business - none other than Tom Cruise. The Hollywood icon will be telling Jonathan all about his new film Mission Impossible 4.

The cast of The Inbetweeners will also be on the sofa talking about their recent transition from TV actors to movie stars!

Jonathan will also welcome the sisters from Downton Abbey onto the show. Jessica Brown Finlay, Laura Carmichael, and Michelle Dockery will reveal what it's like starring on one of the most popular dramas of our time and will also spill the beans on what we can expect from the Downton Abbey Christmas Special.

As if that wasn't enough, comedian and composer Tim Minchin will perform a specially written Christmas song, and there will also be a performance from Italian trio Il Volo - the teenage tenors who made a name for themselves on American Idol.
