Let me wish your mum
a Happy Christmas!

To celebrate this still-new website finding its feet and to thank you for visiting, either via Facebook or Twitter or Google, here is my idea:

I wish your mum a Happy Christmas

(Or dad, or hubby, or sister, or granny. Or kids! Or wife!). I can do the first twenty requests. Please, in the reply box below, write your relative’s name and one particular thing I ought to know about them. Then I will reply by uploading a link to the folder below with your rellie’s name on. You can ask me to mention Strictly, or Eggheads, or whatever! If you look in the folder, you can see the ones I’ve done so far:


Please leave: your name, your relative’s name, who they are (e.g. mum), where they are (e.g. Doncaster);

and some info about them, eg they love Radio 2, Led Zeppelin and snooker. I can’t do it without the extra facts!

      All the very best for 2016!!

      • Claire Peden says:

        Oh, and I forgot to say, it’s her birthday on the 29th December and she always gets less presents as everyone gives her one and says it’s for her Christmas and birthday!!! This year we’re all going hill walking at Loch Lomond with the dogs then a lovely dinner in Luss!! (This is Geri O’Rourke from Motherwell, see rest of post below)

        Thanks Jezza!!!!!

  • Angus says:

    Could you say a hello to my Partner Susan – I have been on your show a few times talking about Wedding Photography, fighting at Weddings etc and she gets very very embarrassed to the point she has to switch the radio. She makes jokes like “there’s your Mate Jezzer on the TV again”

    A personal message would be so good – she is a hard working Pharmacist and has to work on Christmas Day

    Thank you

  • Sue Tizard says:

    Maggie Tooze, absolutely loves Strictly and would love to have seen you dance.She has met Anton a couple of times at dances.
    She is not the most organised person in the run up to Christmas as she tends to spend time running around doing things for others first. Please wish her a more organised 2016 and let her knoiw that Christmas 2016 will be on December 25th and that we all love her lots. From Sue and Lesley

    • Sue Tizard says:

    It would be lovely if you could say Merry Christmas to my mum Gwen, affectionately known as Gwennie. She lives in Sudbury, Suffolk, and is currently getting ready to host the whole family tomorrow. She tries to pretend she’s not at all bothered when I tell her that you and I have been chatting on Twitter but I know she’s star struck really! We both listen to your radio show and often phone each other to say “Are you listening to Jeremy?” or “Quick, put Jeremy on!” whenever we feel the other needs to be listening. And obviously she loved watching you on Strictly, too. But mostly – she makes a legendary trifle at Christmas!

    My name is Virginia, and I would like this to be for my mother, Teari Soto, who lives in Ohio. We have no spent a Christmas with one another in over 10 years after my family was separated due a unfortunate occurance. She recently lost her only companion, Dallas Winston, the family pet beagle. She loves the color purple, acdc, and tulips. She’s a little woman with a lot of spunk that could use an extra special greeting this year. Thank you so much and merry Christmas to you and your family.

  • Tracey Hill says:

    Could you wish the Tapley family a fabulous Christmas. Alan gets a lot of ribbing for looking like Anton Du Beke. I’m hoping that this message with overtake the fuzzy photo of Scott Mills that we got for Grandma Liz a few years ago, who is strictly mad. Ellie is a 5 year old budding magician who watched strictly while sitting in the washing basket and you were her favourite. Lottie is 1 on 27th, and we had better mention the leader of the rabble Nicky.
    You have been a true inspiration this year Jeremy… best wishes for 2016. From Tracey.

  • Nigel Spencer Andrews says:

    Jeremy. …You know me… Nigel Spencer Andrews….me of the Hard Boiled egg JFK LAX flight….We’re are out on a Yacht tonight and want you just to wish everyone on Sailboat “Fair Nicole” a safe a peaceful Christmas.

  • Julia Rich says:

    Hello Jeremy,
    I know I’m too late but here goes anyway!
    Merry Christmas to my mum Jackie Wright. We can’t spend Christmas together this year (much as I’m desperate to).
    Over the last month my mum has been caring for a very I’ll relative. She’s also carer to my disabled brother and looks after an elderly neighbour. A busy lady.
    A fact about her – She has the coolest claim to fame… In April 1964 she had lunch in the BBC canteen with all 4 of The Beatles!
    Merry Christmas Mum. Love and miss you so much xxx

    Merry Christmas and thank you to you too Jeremy. X

  • Helen Howard says:

    Would you be able to wish me Happy Christmas. I’m a mum and I’m sure my boys will not have seen this on FB. I loved you in SCD and I’m friends with Karen too. I notice on your website that added to your CV Amateur Dancer. As the saying goes practice makes perfect. So please keep dancing with your wife.

    My name is Helen Howard and I’m from Southport. I’m a huge fan of SCD and I’ve even been to Blackpool to the Opera House. I love watching eggheads and try to answer questions with my husband. Have a lovely Christmas with family. I’ve organised charity dinner dance events called strictly in aid of Woodlands Hospixe, but I’ve been ill this year and wasn’t able to run it. See my blog.
