As if 2016 could not get any worse, Elf the Movie will not be showing on British TV this Christmas.
There was a mini Twitter tantrum over the weekend when Radio Times confirmed the festive favourite starring Will Ferrell and Zooey Deschanel won't be aired anywhere over the holidays - not on the BBC, Sky Movies, Netflix or Amazon Prime.
The pain, the horror, the heartache. But it's not all bad.
Call it a Christmas miracle, or damn fine planning but on Tuesday December 20, we'll be hosting an open air screening of Elf at De Koffie Pot in Hereford.
Think firepits, cosy blankets, pop up food and mulled cider. The gates open at 5pm, with the film starting at 6pm. A limited number of tickets are still available.
