The first photo from the Young Offenders Christmas Special has just been released and it looks like it’s gonna be an eventful one.

It was revealed last week that the hit show had a one-off episode on the way with Robert Sheehan that’s already been filmed and will air on RTÉ and the BBC next month.

The new image shows Conor and Jock (Alex Murphy and Chris Walley) with Conor’s mum Mairead (Hilary Rose) looking alarmed to say the least, as Conor frantically waves a bed pan around.

The official synopsis reads, ‘It’s Christmas week, and the residents of the estate where Conor, Jock and Mairead live have been fighting off an eviction from the council for over a month.

‘The residents have created a barricade to show their determination that they won’t be moved to make way for the estate to be renovated.

‘While all this is happening, Mairead has been sick for weeks and has to be taken to hospital. The situation proves to be more serious than thought and not knowing how to help, the lads ask Mairead if there’s anything they can get her.

‘The two friends set off on a chaotic adventure to try make her wish come true and in the process find out something about themselves and the value of empathy.’

The official air date has not yet been announced, though it’s expected to be towards the end of December.
