The 'Ghosts' Leave Button House

The fifth and final series of the hit comedy starts on BBC One on Friday 6th October – but the team behind the show have today revealed that there will be a festive episode too.

They posted on social media: ‘The final series of Ghosts starts on Friday… but there might be one last present under the Christmas tree this year #BBCGhosts.’

It follows the success of last year’s special, which attracted 5.9million viewers, making it the biggest comedy of the year.

When the end of the series was announced earlier this year, the BBC said: ‘The team behind the smash-hit show have decided that after five series, it’s time to wave goodbye to the inhabitants of Button House and focus on new projects.’

The show was created by client Martha Howe-Douglasalong with Mathew Baynton, Simon Farnaby, Jim Howick, Laurence Rickard and Ben Willbond – who also play the ghosts.
