THE Christmas Radio Times has been bought and its cover immediately removed in accordance with Yuletide tradition.
The magazine, which theoretically exists all year, has been bought and mutilated to mark the approach of Christmas by families across the country.
Roy Hobbs, from Hatfield, said: “Best part of the year, feeling those staples strain and then the crisp pop of the cover coming away in your hands.
“Then the family all flick through it, circling shows we want to see and asking each other why it has such a bloody thick holiday section when nobody has any bloody money after Christmas.
“And after that, we completely ignore it and do all our TV planning through the Freeview menu.”
