Published: Fri 20 Dec 2013

Prime Minister David Cameron receives a surprise Christmas present from Little Ant & Dec on ITV’s Text Santa, broadcast on ITV on Friday, December 20 at 8pm.
 
Presented with a bottle-green jumper including a knitted pattern of Santa Claus, snowflakes and a ‘Noel’ message, the PM says: “It is the Christmas Jersey! Look at that! That is fantastic; it’s my size too, you have got that absolutely right. It’s fabulous, thank you very much indeed. That’s really kind”

Asked if London Mayor Boris Johnson deserves any Christmas presents, the Prime Minister jokes: “If you think about it, Santa is quite jolly and fun and Boris is quite jolly and funny. And I don’t think you have seen the two of them together, and maybe there’s something in that.”
 
This Christmas, in a World Exclusive for ITV’s Text Santa, Prime Minister David Cameron faces a TV inquisition like never before.  He’s faced Jeremy Paxman, Tom Bradby and John Humphrys.  But now the PM comes up against his toughest test yet – a grilling from Little Ant & Dec.
 
Text Santa is ITV's annual charity appeal, which raises money, and awareness for six UK based charities.   100% of donations raised will be distributed equally between the six charities.
 
All money generously donated by ITV viewers goes directly to the six charities – Age UK, Barnardo’s, BeatBullying, British Heart Foundation, CLIC Sargent and Help the Hospices. ITV directly funds all operating costs, and donations are distributed evenly between the charities within three months of the televised appeal.
