Time to rock on Santa!
Comedians Cannon and Ball are right on target for Christmas - at the top of the tree.
Tonight they round off their most successful year in showbusiness with their own 45-minute show, Cannon and Ball For Christmas (ITV, 6pm). With two successful series behind them, no wonder they are all smiles.
It has taken them 11 years to get where they are today.
Now everywhere they go Tommy Cannon, 40, and Bobby Ball, 35, are greeted by their catchphrase, "Rock on Tommy" - and they love it.
