It may not happen every year, but it’s bound to happen at least once in your lifetime. You’re hosting a Christmas meal and you have a guest(s) attending who you’re not at all comfortable with. It could be a family grudge, a lack of warmth, or simply the fact that you know they don’t want to be there.

Never fear, our five-step plan is here. We’ll take you through some important tips – from table settings and food options, to alcohol choices and when to make it clear the party is over. There’s an art to this thing called hosting and socialising at Christmas time, and you – and your guests – deserve to have a sensational Christmas (including the awkward ones).

Enjoy this tongue in cheek (joking not joking) festive episode of 100 Not Out.
