Gay Spy's Christmas essentials

By
Phew! You've decked the halls with boughs of holly, chatted to your gran about the Strictly final - yes, that Alesha really is a lovely-looking girl - and eaten enough turkey to feed a family of foxes for a month. With your Christmas duties taken care of, it's time to plan some fun and frolics for the rest of the festive season. A daunting task? Not at all - because Gay Spy is here to help.


The one to... download

Booty Luv release 'Some Kinda Rush', the fourth single from their Boogie 2Nite album, on December 24. This throbbing disco stomper has a chorus so big, sugary and exciting you'll feel like you've glugged a double shot of cherry vodka every time you play it. Trust us on this one - your New Year's Eve preparations won't be complete without it.


The one to... watch

Kylie Minogue hooks up with David Tennant - the only Timelord ever to tease our loins - for the Doctor Who Christmas special, airing December 25 at 6.50pm on BBC One. The little Aussie pop rocket doesn't get to sing, but DS' TV guru reckons her acting technique isn't quite as rusty as those comedy skits from The Kylie Show would suggest.


The one to... burn off Christmas lunch

If your belly isn't too full of Quality Street, you might fancy taking a glide round one of London's open air ice rinks. Located at some of the most photo-friendly landmarks in the capital - Hampton Court Palace, the Tower of London, Kew Gardens, Somerset House and the Natural History Museum - they're open all through the festive season, so finding time for your Torvill & Dean moment shouldn't be too tricky.


The one to... spice up your life

The Spice Girls complete the London leg of their reunion tour at the O2 Arena (January 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 9, 11, 12, 13, 15, 16, 18, 20 and 22), before heading up to Manchester for a trio of dates at the MEN Arena (January 23, 24 and 26). Their trilling skills won't have Leona ringing her vocal coach in tears, and their dance routines certainly wouldn't get a ten (or even a six) from Arlene Phillips, but their live show is still one hell of a nostalgia trip.


The one to... keep an eye on

Big Brother: Celebrity Hijack begins on January 3 at 9pm on E4. Can the world's greatest reality show recover from its annus horribilis? Well, the clever folks at Endemol have formulated a three-stage plan to improve its chances. One, each of the BB:CH housemates will be an "exceptional" youngster with prodigious artistic, sporting, scientific, musical or entrepreneurial talent. Two, a slew of famous faces – Matt Lucas, Joan Rivers, Malcolm McLaren, to name but three – will be taking on the Big Brother role. Three, Dermot will be hosting instead of Davina. Sounds promising, doesn't it?
