Will wrote in the caption: “And just like that, Christmas is over before it’s even started. That’s the end of this year’s Christmas special. Can’t wait to see what it looks like later in the year. Well done team!”
But as pleased as Will’s followers were to see the cute photo, they rushed to the comment section of the post to ask the same question. Many are hoping that this year’s festive episode of the BBC program will include experts taking part in the Secret Santa gift exchange.
