In this new version of the BAFTA award-winning series, groups of children aged up to 13 will be offering their opinions on key moments of 2015 from the cakes on The Great British Bake Off to the fate of Cecil the Lion.

Produced by Studio Lambert, the kids will take over the sofa and hold conversations in living rooms as they react to what they see on TV.

Studio Lambert creative director Tim Harcourt, said: "We have seen that kids say the funniest things on TV, and this version of the Channel 4 hit will allow school children from different backgrounds to do this as they react to their screens - big and small.

"We think that this Christmas special will show more than their views on visual content and TV today, it will reveal how they see the world around them."
