Undateables Richard was in fine form as he reluctantly dragged himself through the Undateables Christmas special episode.

Daming and cursing throughout, it’s no hidden truth that Richard hates Christmas. In fact, he hasn’t bought his mum a Christmas gift in over 20 years.

As you may have expected, Richard’s moody decorating of a Christmas tree was utterly hilarious.

Decorating the Christmas Tree!

Step one of the special Undateables: A Festive Proposal episode involved a spot of Christmas tree shopping.

However, Richard was far from amused by the price of the baubles.

And as for the gnomes, well, they didn’t stand a chance…

The 44-year-old really grew into his Scrooge stride as he met up with his mum, Liz, to get the rest of the house Christmas decorations ready.

This was his way of chipping in seems he refused to buy presents…

Richard’s mum had asked him to break the bank and spend more than he usually would on the wine.

He decided to buy the cheapest bottle in the shop, negotiating a long-winded discount that took the price down from £4.99 to £3.30.

Then again, to be fair, he did spend more this year…

A Special Christmas Present!

However, despite the tight strings on his purse, Richard did splash out a little extra on his mum by getting her a box of chocolates.

Her first gift in 20 years!
