Nathan Carter: We shot my new BBC special in my own house

TUNE in to Keepin' er Country at Christmas on BBC One next Friday when Jake and myself will be hosting a festive country music-inspired celebration from my house in Fermanagh.

It's going to be an action-packed Christmas show and it was great fun filming it.

Apart from all the festive music, there's lots of different craic going on as well and, of course, as it was filmed in my home I'm welcoming people to come and share a bit of the house.

You can join us as we're decorating the place for Christmas, and we had some fun trying to get the biggest Christmas tree we chopped down in Fermanagh through the hall door.

It was 18ft tall, and needless to say we failed in our mission to squeeze it into the house. You can imagine the shenanigans then when we had to wrap it up and take it back!


Jake and myself then try our hand at making Yule logs with varying degrees of success. Let's just say one of ours was perfect and one wasn't.

The latter, in fact, was a complete mess. So tune in to see which of us gave Mary Berry a run for her money.

I'll be duetting with Jake on a couple of songs, including Feels Like Christmas, and I'll be singing with one of our special guests, Lisa McHugh.

The band will be in the house so I'll be doing a bunch of songs with them, and also joining us at the festive house party are Cliona Hagan and Robert Mizzell, who will be singing their favourites.

Even though we can't go on tour as normal, we can still play to an audience as some of our biggest fans will be joining us via Zoom for this festive evening of music, song and lots of great craic.
