Mary Berry, Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins are to be reunited on BBC One for a very special programme from BBC Studios to air this Christmas.

For one exceptional group of people in South Wales, Christmas has come early. In an area that’s experienced some tough times, Mary, Mel and Sue will sprinkle their festive magic on its residents, who, despite their setbacks have pulled together to open a community centre. With their local school and post office closing, the centre has become a lifeline for young children and elderly pensioners alike, providing everything from regular hot meals to weekly bingo. It’s the beating heart of the community, but both the centre and the amazing volunteers keeping it afloat, are deserving of some serious festive cheer.

Usually, the volunteers at the centre try and make Christmas as special as possible, but this year, they’re in for the shock of their lives, as Mary, Mel and Sue will surprise them with the most magnificent Christmas party the town has ever seen.

Mary, along with a gang of local helpers, will create a spectacular traditional Christmas dinner, while Mel and Sue will rally the troops and stage a magical back drop to the party, as well as give the centre a face lift, leaving a legacy for the community which will last for years to come.

Charlotte Moore, Director of BBC Content says: “What a lovely chance for BBC One to help bring a community together and give something back to some incredible volunteers this Christmas, especially when the surprise party is organised by Mary, Mel and Sue!”

David Brindley, Head of Commissioning, Popular Factual and Factual Entertainment says: “What could be a more joyful Christmas treat than reuniting the brilliant Mary, Mel and Sue around such a heart-warming, important event? I can’t wait to see the reaction of the community they’re surprising, as our trio shine a light on those who have gone the extra mile to make life a little easier for their neighbours.”

Jon Swain, Head of Unscripted Productions, BBC Studios, says: “It’s a real privilege for BBC Studios’ Unscripted Productions to be working with Mary, Mel and Sue on their comeback show. They’re three of the most talented women on British television and they will bring monster helpings of joy and laughter to our screens this Christmas with this exciting new format.”

Mary, Mel and Sue’s Surprise Party (w/t), a 1×60’ for BBC One, will be made by BBC Studios Unscripted Productions. It was commissioned by Charlotte Moore, Director of BBC Content and David Brindley, Head of Commissioning, Popular Factual and Factual Entertainment. The Executive Producers are Becky Clarke and Jon Swain and the Commissioning Editor is Michael Jochnowitz.

KTEE – has been singing since the moment she spoke her first word and hasn’t stopped since. Countless hours of her childhood were spent in her tiny room in Maria Neustift (Austria), her home town. This is where she trained her voice on her own, relying only on her mother’s bulky red tape recorder. One pop song after another was recorded, listened to, analyzed and re-sung until she was fully satisfied with the sound. In fact, 102 recordings were collected on her treasured cassettes to the point of breaking – literally


But who is KTEE and why should you listen to her music? KTEE is a self-confident, independent, perfectionist, energetic singer who can laugh about herself and who knows her own mind. She isn’t really a “bad girl” but she definitely is not a “goody-goody” or the so- called “sweet girl next door”. She wants her audience to have fun and “rock their lives” along with her. Her motto: “Dare to do what you love, remain true to yourself, make something of yourself and don’t take life too seriously”. All of this is reflected in her songs, presenting the audience with her outstanding message behind a powerful voice.

With all that being said, KTEE introduces us to her debut Track, “So What”

“I’m stronger than my mistakes” – This is the first line of the chorus and also the main message of the song “So What”. The powerful song reflects the singer’s personality and also her personal growth from a teenager full of self-doubts to a self-confident young woman who knows exactly what she wants and who (most of the time) gives a sh* about what other people think about her.

“When I was younger, I had to struggle with depressions and eating disorders and I didn’t really accept myself the way I was. Even worse, I did not know who I was, but wanted to know so badly. I never gave up, I found me and since then I’ve been tryring to follow my dreams.“, so KTEE.

The singer also admits that it is not always easy and that the well-known saying „Follow your dreams“ is often easier said than done and that she still falls on her face sometimes. But she always tries to do it her way, to fight for her dreams and beliefs, no matter what others say, because she says „it is MY WAY and MY LIFE. And the mistakes I’ve made and still make – they make me stronger . I am stronger than my mistakes, even when the earth shakes. SO WHAT!?”,so the singer.
