In this issue of Saga Magazine : ‘Tis the season to be jolly and our interview with this month’s cover star, the irrepressible Nigel Havers, is sure to raise a smile or three. He had lots of fun with the fake snow on our photoshoot, but the debonair, devil-may-care charmer also has a serious side. As he gets set for his 14th season of panto in a row, he talks about love, life and why he’s happier now than ever before. Also enjoying some festive frolics are our big-hearted volunteers, giving their time and spreading comfort and joy to others at this special time of year.

On a lighter note, we ask Noddy Holder, Chris Rea and Midge Ure how they feel about their perennially popular Christmas pop singles. And if you want gifts for the grandchildren that are destined to be big hits, we’ve also got that covered.

Amid all the fun and merriment, however, we are mindful of those who are not spending the holiday surrounded by loved ones. As The Silver Line charity reports, Britain is in the grip of a loneliness epidemic. To see what it feels like to live entirely alone, broadcaster and busy mum Fiona Phillips sampled a life of isolation – with no phone and no computer – for five days. Her honest and heartfelt diary of the experience is deeply moving.

All that, plus our regular pages of events and offers, invaluable money advice from Paul Lewis and Annie Shaw, health problems diagnosed by Dr Mark Porter, relationship dilemmas resolved by Jo Brand, expert travel advice, our £100 prize crosswords and a last laugh with Bill Bailey.
Have a very happy Christmas!
