Catch up with Julia and her friends as they battle their way through the festive season...

The Motherland Christmas special 2020 is finally here in all its hilarious festive glory... and as always it promises to be a Christmas TV highlight. Here's how to watch the Motherland Christmas special online anywhere in the world.

While Christmas is a time for relaxing and putting your feet up in front of the TV... that couldn't be further from reality for Julia in this seasonal offering of the hilarious parenting comedy.

Fed up with waiting on her annoying in-laws hand and foot, Julia sneaks out to a Christmas Eve party, hosted by the obnoxious Amanda.

But once there, the rules and organised fun prevent Julia, Kevin and Liz from letting their hair down... although super-cool Meg doesn't seem to have too much trouble in that department!

The Motherland Christmas special is a brilliant chance to switch off from the world for half an hour and have a good laugh - make sure you don't miss it.
