Sky One is to air a festive special of the Romesh Ranganathan series.
Join The Reluctant Landlord for his festive outing, Monday 23rd December on Sky One and NOW TV.
“It’s a real treat to have Jo Joyner join us for the one-off December special of The Reluctant Landlord. Having the entire cast around for Christmas was hilarious and we lost a lot of scenes to us cracking up on set. I hope everyone has as good a time watching it as we did making it.” – Romesh Ranganathan
The Reluctant Landlord is confirmed to return to screens this December with a very festive Christmas Special, airing on Sky One. Jo Joyner from EastEnders will make a guest appearance as Natasha’s (Sian Gibson) not-so-welcome sister in the Christmas edition of the Sky original.

Romesh Ranganathan and Sian Gibson will be joined by the returning main cast including Yasmine Akram (Julie the barmaid), Nick Helm (Lemon, a regular), Marek Larwood (Lee, a regular), Steve Edge (David Foster, a rival publican) and Shaheen Khan (playing Romesh’s mum, Jayanthi).
The Christmas special of Ranganathan’s semi-autobiographical sitcom will give viewers a glimpse into Christmas day at the ‘The Seven Swans’, airing on Monday 23rd December at 10pm.
Jo Joyner co-stars as Sarah, Natasha’s sister who turns up unannounced and puts the family on edge; from helping herself to Santa’s whisky to ‘helping’ the kids with their presents, her selfish traits cause comedic havoc throughout. Natasha tasks Romesh with the job of getting rid of her as quickly as possible – whatever it takes. Matthew Crosby also makes a guest appearance in the spirit of Christmas.
“After the success of the first and second series, we’re thrilled to introduce viewers to a festive edition of this joyful comedy – adding some ha has to your ho ho hos! With the likes of Jo Joyner joining Romesh, Sian Gibson and the original cast, The Reluctant Landlord is yet another example of the growing comedy offering on Sky One.” – Tilusha Ghelani, Commissioning Editor, Sky
Jo Joyner is best-known as Tanya Branning in EastEnders, BBC One.
