WATCH: The Full Trailer For The Young Offenders Christmas Special Is Finally Here

Kiara Keane

BBC Three has released The Young Offenders Christmas Special trailer ahead of its premiere tomorrow and it looks like it’s going to be fairly outrageous.

The first teaser dropped yesterday, where Conor and Jock were seen wearing a single Santa suit together, and it looks like it’s only going downhill from there for them.

The new trailer shows the lads stealing an entire Christmas tree via someone’s front window, Jock accidentally spilling a full bedpan all over himself, Santa getting arrested and a whole lot more.

The synopsis for the special 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 the 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 to make her wish come true and in the process find out something about themselves and the value of empathy.’

It’s airing on BBC Three tomorrow night, followed by BBC One on December 23 at 11.15pm, and then RTÉ One will be airing the episode on Christmas day at 10.35pm.
