"This year, Xander and I are not just getting blotto at Christmas, we're looking into WHY we're getting blotto at Christmas, and how best to do it," said Coren.

"We're seeking answers to the big cultural questions such as 'eggnog or mulled wine, dear?' and asking 'what would Jesus have drunk?'"

Armstrong added: "At last we have the opportunity to nail that most complicated issue that dogs the end of each year: the one that starts with the question 'What are you having?'

"We've done all the work so you don't need to and here - after back-breaking research - we reveal the very best things with which to fill your glass this winter."

The programme was executive produced by Alison Kirkham for the BBC and Claire Collinson-Jones for Hat Trick Productions.
