Peter Martin is Joe Carroll in the 2012 Christmas Special of The Royle Family, which can be seen tonight on BBC One at 10:35pm.

A new neighbour’s cleavage is one of the many topics of conversation as the couch-potato clan gathers for another fun-filled Christmas Day. This year Barbara has gone overboard with the presents after spending an entire two hours in the pound shop, Joe next door has turned to the lonely hearts column, although his advert leaves a lot to be desired, and Dave has had a flash of entrepreneurial inspiration that he intends to pitch to Dragons’ Den – are the family on the brink of becoming millionaires?


Peter Martin is best known for his roles Joe Carroll in all series of The Royle Family, series regular Len Reynolds in Emmerdale and Jacko Roberts in Dalziel & Pascoe. Other notable screen credits include Bert in Skins, Ernie in the critically acclaimed feature film Brassed Off and Tom in The Parole Officer.
