Chris Kamara backs Daily Star’s plea to ‘show us yer baubles’ and save Christmas

The Daily Star has stepped in to save Christmas – by asking our army of ­readers nationwide to “Show Us Your Baubles”.

We want you to put lockdown woes behind you and join us in starting the festive season early.

We challenge you to crack open the mulled wine, get out the decorations, put up the tree and help us ­celebrate a cracking Christmas – for the next two months!

We want to see dreary shutdown streets festooned with fairy lights and rooftop reindeer. And we want you to share photos of your fun-packed ­festivities with us to help brighten up Britain. We don’t care how crazy your early Christmas gets – just as long as it’s a cracker.

A host of celebrities have joined the fun – led by Mr Christmas himself, Noddy Holder. The Slade singer, whose hit Merry Xmas Everybody has been a festive anthem for nearly 50 years, said our campaign was just what the nation needed.

Noddy, 74, said: “These are ­difficult times for sure. There is only one positive answer at the moment… look to the future now, it’s only just begun’’.

LadBaby – who has had the No1 Yuletide single for the past two years – said: “The missus put up all our Christmas decorations at the weekend. To be ­honest, as soon as I knew we were going back into lockdown, I couldn’t wait for her to get my baubles out!”

Former I’m A Celeb winner and panto favourite Christopher Biggins, 71, hailed our campaign a “marvellous idea”. He said: “This sounds a great way to cheer us all up right now. Now you have mentioned it I might get my baubles out early too!’’

Pantomime veteran and children’s TV legend Basil Brush called on the nation to have a “Boom! Boom!” blast.

The fun-loving fox said: “Cheer yourselves up by whipping out your baubles and tantalise with your tinsel.’’

Footie pundit Chris Kamara, 61, who has just released new album …And A Happy New Year, said: “November is going to be a bit of a damp squib, so let’s all fast-forward to December, get the Christmas decorations out and raise a smile across the nation.”
