Storyline

Christmas is coming but Barbara is not happy. Not only has she lost her wedding ring but Jim has won on a scratch card she found down the back of the sofa whilst looking for the ring and has kept quiet about his hundred pounds winnings. Nor is he especially sympathetic about Dave's impotency problem, though the entire Royle family unite to help recently widowed Joe from next door enjoy a restaurant-style evening in their house with the equally scatty Philomena, whom he has met through a want ad. On Christmas Day Barbara lashes out at Jim for his laziness and juvenile antics - though his description of a busty barmaid cures Dave's problem. However she is in for a pleasant surprise when she discovers just how he spent his scratch card winnings. Written by don @ minifie-1

Another amazing royle family special
15 December 2018 | by cyorke-34660See all my reviews

What I've learnt from this show is it has fans and haters, you need a certain sense of humour to enjoy it. I have this sense of humour and I absolutely love it. This is the last episode of The Royle Family and again it is another timeless classic with very funny jokes and a very funny plot. Just watch it and give it a go, I swear you won't be disappointed
