Gone Fishing Christmas special confirmed for BBC Two

The hour-long Mortimer & Whitehouse: Gone Christmas Fishing follows Bob Mortimer returning to his childhood roots in Middlesbrough where he will fish the River Esk and Tees with his dear friend and angling mentor Paul Whitehouse.

As well as trying to catch the glorious Grayling, Bob is also going to try to ignite the joy of Christmas in Paul, who thinks the magic of the season has been lost to commercialism.

Will Paul see the magic of Christmas through Bob’s eyes? A very big surprise at the end of the program could guarantee it.

Mortimer & Whitehouse: Gone Christmas Fishing airs Sunday, 13 December at 8:10pm on BBC Two.
