The BBC has announced that the new series of Open All Hours will form part of its Christmas television line-up.

Although a time and channel have not been confirmed for the first episode of Still Open All Hours, it is thought the new series may begin screening on Christmas Day or Boxing Day.

Last year, the revival of the sitcom classic drew in more than ten million viewers, making it the biggest hit of the festive schedules and one of the most watched shows of 2013.

Filming for the new six part series has just drawn to a close and production staff are now editing the footage for broadcast later in the year.

In September, hundreds of fans descended on Doncaster to catch a glimpse of stars including Sir David Jason, Lynda Baron and Johnny Vegas filming exterior sequences in Balby.

The Beautique hairdressing salon on the corner of Lister Avenue and Scarth Avenue, used for the original run of the series between 1973 and 1985, was transformed once more into Arkwright’s cluttered emporium for the filming.
