THE day before Christmas and a return home for Green Wing star Darren Boyd.
He came back to Britain for good earlier this year after five years working in America and Canada.
And the former Kiss Me Kate and Smack The Pony actor arrived at UK customs with something extra special.
While out in the USA he married New Orleans-born TV producer wife Amanda.
“She’s here now. I imported her. We’re spending Christmas with my mum and dad,” he told me.
You can see Darren at 9pm tonight in ITV1’s big festive comedy Christmas At The Riviera, set in a seaside hotel.
He plays Tim, with Sam Kelly as father Dennis, on a poignant mission to scatter the ashes of Tim’s mum in Eastbourne.
“Our story is one of letting go and reminding yourself of what you have,” explained Darren.
Aside from Christmas Eve TV, don’t forget that, as every year, you can Track Santa here.
