Early Breakfast with Jenni Falconer 4am - 6am
Viewers are confused after a channel dedicates an ENTIRE afternoon to festive films.
There's no doubt that Christmas is the best time of year, however some viewers were left with their stockings in a twist after being forced to watch festive movie marathon FIVE months early.
In a bid to kick the yuletide season off early, Channel 5 dedicated their Sunday film schedule to films Christmas movies with the likes of 'A Christmas Song', The Christmas Bunny' and 'Defending Santa' on the bill.
We admit, we'd never heard of any of the above movies either!
While some fans were overjoyed at the idea of Christmas coming 126 days early, others more confused than they were annoyed and swiftly took to Twitter to voice their opinions.

While the majority vented their frustrations others were more than happy to hunker down to some festive flicks.
