Mariah’s World
Songbird Mariah Carey is inviting the cameras into her life for an eight-part event. Filmed before her very public break up from billionaire James Packer, not only do we get to see her twins, Monroe and Moroccan, and her preparation for her world tour, but there’s also a view into how she prepared for her then-upcoming wedding. Tune in on Sundays from 11 December at 20:00 on E! for a fabulous time with Mimi.

Who killed JonBenet?
It’s been 20 years since the killing of child beauty queen JonBenet Ramsay and, after extensive investigations, no one has been arrested for her murder. Tune in to Lifetime on Sunday 18 December at 20:00 and see how this original movie revisits JonBenet’s killing and the investigation.

Hairspray Live!
One thing we can’t stop praising Hollywood for is its way of spicing things up. They’re bringing us a live adaptation of one of Broadway’s most successful musicals - and the cast is star-studded!

Tune in at 18:00 and get ready to sing along to her biggest hits – from Chasing Pavements and Set Fire to the Rain, to Hello.


Finding Bigfoot

For decades, the one question that hasn’t gotten the answers that people were looking for was: Does Bigfoot exist? Now Discovery Family is doing its own research with the docu-series Finding Bigfoot. Tune in on Wednesday 28 December at 21:00, and see what these explorers find.

Royal Variety Performance
We can all agree that 2016 has been a tough year, so it’s time to relax and enjoy as we prepare to kick off 2017 with a bang. As is M-Net’s annual tradition, the channel will bring a performance of the royal kind. With guests including senior members of the British Royal Family, enjoy performances by Gary Barlow, Robbie Williams, Sting and Emeli Sande at 20:35 on Saturday 31 December, only on M-Net.
