Lady Gaga's The Muppets Christmas special to be broadcast on Channel 5

The 'Holiday Spectacular' will show the singer duetting with Kermit The Frog and a performance from Elton John

Channel 5 has confirmed that it will broadcast Lady Gaga's Muppets Christmas special in the UK.

The 90-minute TV special will feature performances from Elton John, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and RuPaul, and will also see Gaga duet with Kermit the Frog.

"I was so excited when ABC called me about doing a holiday special this year," said Lady Gaga in a statement. "I knew it just wouldn't be a complete night of laughter and memories without The Muppets! Can't wait to see the gang again and I hope Miss Piggy's still not mad about Kermit. We're just friends!"

Kermit The Frog added: "What an incredible opportunity! We have a long history with Ms. Gaga, so we jumped at the chance to do a holiday special with her. We won’t even mind if she mistakes some of the Muppets for pieces of her wardrobe - again."

The show will also feature a performance of Gaga's single 'Applause'. In addition, Swedish Chef, Beaker and Animal will perform special renditions of Christmas classics 'Deck the Halls' and 'Jingle Bells'.

The programme will also feature a preview of the forthcoming new Muppets film Muppets Most Wanted in which Lady Gaga makes a cameo – watch a trailer for it below.
