New Year’s Eve favourite Jools Holland’s Hootenanny returns to screens for its 28th year.

Hosted by Jools Holland, the show features an array of music performed throughout the night from megastars to up-coming artists.

The show itself isn’t actually a live broadcast. Instead, singers, celebrity guests and more get together at the start of December to record the New Year special.

Alongside Jools and his Rhythm and Blues Orchestra, the show will host icons including Lulu and Ed Sheeran.
