The 2017 and 2018 double BAFTA nominated entertainment series The Last Leg is being supersized this New Year’s Eve on Channel 4 with an extra special two-hour extravaganza to give 2018 a glorious send off.

As usual, there’ll be hilarious VTs featuring friends of the show and a multitude of trademark sketches centred around 2018’s biggest news stories, as well as Josh’s selection of the funniest clips and stills from the last 365 days.

In a fit of end of year madness, the boys also take a trip to Innsbruck, Austria where Alex Brooker attempts to become the first disabled man in history to take part in the most dangerous of Winter Olympic sports -  the double luge!

So pop the champagne and join The Last Leg Of The Year from 9pm on Channel 4 and give 2019 a rapturous welcome.

The fifteenth series of The Last Leg continues every Friday until 21st December 2018, live at 10pm on Channel 4.
