Wife Ma is played by Bafta nominated actress Joanna Scanlan, who has appeared in The Thick of it, Puppy Love and No Offence.

What is the plot for The Larkins Christmas Special?

In the village all the talk is of the pantomime and an ongoing spate of burglaries – Miss Pilchester, the Normans and Johnny Delamere are amongst the victims.  

Whilst PC Harness applies his limited gifts to finding the culprit, Mariette and Charley take their love to the next level.

Pop and Ma are overjoyed to have the pair back for Christmas, but when Charley’s parents arrive to meet the Larkin clan, and the entire village is left without lighting and heating following a power cut, chaos descends on the Larkins farm.

Speaking to ITV, Joanna Scanlan, who plays Ma, teased the show’s festive episode, which reportedly has a big “twist”.

“I think you think you know what you’re going to get – and I don’t think you’re going to get what you think you’re going to get out of this Christmas special,” she said.

“I will not say a word specifically but there are lots of twists and turns it it. It genuinely does remind you what Christmas is about – what it really is about – as well as giving you, of course, I hope a lot of laughs and pleasure on the way. It’s got a twist, to say the least of it. ”
