Bristol's Aardman Animations have given fans a first look at their rather unusual Christmas special.
Shaun made his debut in Nick Park's A Close Shave in 1995. He's since gone on to star in his own TV series and his own movie. This summer Shaun statues could be seen all across Bristol and London as the Shaun in the City trail took to the streets. The Farmer's Llamas will be his first 30-minute special - and it's set to air this Christmas.
But true to form, Aardman haven't conformed to tradition. Reindeer have been replaced by Hector, Fernando and Raul - a flock of llamas who get tangled up in Shaun's adventures.
The iconic Shaun in the City figures are being auctioned off on Thursday. It's expected to raise millions for Bristol Children's HospitalRead the full story ›

Today is the final day to catch Bristol's Shaun in the City statues out in their natural habitat.
From tonight the 70 sculptures are off to pastures new - they'll be rounded up for two special exhibitions ahead of the charity auction in October, raising money for the Bristol Children's Hospital.
Despite being on course for the wettest August on record, these sheep seem to have been a real hit, and everyone's got a favourite.
We talked to those who braved the weather to have a last look at their Shauns:
Organisers say the trail has been a huge success. Here's the trail in numbers:
Shaun is so popular...he spans the age range. From young children through to Grandma and Granddad, we've had the whole family on the trail.
The sculptures will be auctioned off to raise money for The Grand Appeal, so Shaun's popularity could make a real difference:
Today's the last day you can see the 70 models that make up the Shaun in the City trail in Bristol.
Organisers say the sculptures have attracted hundreds of thousands of visitors, including many from overseas.
The figures are due to be auctioned off with proceeds going to Bristol Children's Hospital.
