While Channel 4’s The Greatest Snowman made a delightfully festive debut on Friday night, several viewers ended up sorely disappointed after expecting to watch Hugh Jackman’s 2017 film The Greatest Showman.
The one-off special, presented by comedian Sue Perkins, saw reality star Dani Dyer, actor Johnny Vegas, TV host Cherry Healey, former Great British Bake Off contestant Liam Charles and interior designer Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen compete against one another to create the perfect snow sculpture.
While the programme’s title intrigued some, others were getting ready to put their feet up and watch the critically acclaimed musical drama starring Hugh, Zac Efron, and Zendaya…. or so they thought.
One confused viewer wrote: ‘We got excited to see The Greatest Showman on tonight, turned over to find its #thegreatestsnowman. Very disappointing.’
Another agreed, saying: ‘When you get excited thinking the TV guide says the greatest showman but it actually says the greatest snowman #channel4.’
Despite the initial confusion, fans branded the show an ‘absolute treat’ which helped get them in the Christmas spirit.
