Ralf Little as Richard.

CHRISTMAS may have been cancelled for The Royle Family but Ralf Little and Craig Cash are still about to cause a TV stir.

This year’s BBC1 festive special has been axed because writers Craig and Caroline Aherne failed to come up with the script in time.

But Ralf and Craig will be raising a smile in the run-up to Christmas thanks to a new TV comedy set in a seaside coffee shop.

The seafront set for Sky1 HD’s The Cafe was so realistic that locals and tourists in Weston-Super-Mare queued to be served.
