The album and tour will feature new versions of festive hits such as Sleigh Ride, Santa Claus is Coming to Town, It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year and Silent Night.
Barrowman has also confirmed that he’ll also be joined by some famous faces and celebrity friends on the record to record some brand new duets.
