The Manx duo who became a social media hit after publishing a Manx dialect sketch on video-sharing website YouTube have made a Christmas Special follow-up.

In September we reported how Juan McGuinness and Ben Watterson had made the tongue-in-cheek video, with director Stephen Goodspeed, translating Manx dialect terms into standard English.

Juan said: ‘After the surprise success of the first one so many people came up to us with nice compliments – and they kept asking when the next one would be out.

‘It was difficult thinking of the Manx spin on Christmas but inspiration hit me while I was at a mhelliah and witnessed the escalated prices of turnips. We’re chuffed that people seem to like it and still amazed at the number of views – we’re just simple Manx lads at heart after all!’
