Tune in to Text Santa at 8pm on UTV

Text Santa, a charity show with hosts Ant and Dec; Patrick Kielty brings some of the best comedy talent in Northern Ireland together in Funny on the Foyle; and Leinster play Edinburgh in Live Pro12 Rugby on RTÉ One. Here's our TV picks for December 20

Text Santa, UTV, 8.00pm

A seasonal variety show which will see a host of stars raising money for their favourite charities. Ant and Dec, Philip Schofield, Holly Willoughby, Christine Bleakley and Paddy McGuinness will each host a segment of the show. Expect Coronation Street stars to perform Fairytale of Weatherfield with Shane MacGowan (who celebrates his 56th birthday on Christmas Day), while Emmerdale stars will appear in an exclusive sketch.

Funny on the Foyle, BBC One, 9.00pm

Patrick Kielty brings some of the best comedy talent from Northern Ireland together in Derry as part of the UK City of Culture 2013 celebrations. The show features the comic talents or Roy Walker, Jake O'Kane, Colin Murphy and Blame Game's Tim McGarry.

Live Pro12 Rugby, RTÉ Two, 7.30pm

Having made a solid start to their Pro12 season, Leinster face their latest challenge as they come up against Edinburgh at home in Murrayfield stadium. They won the title last season under Joe Schmidt so expectations are running high for Matt O'Connor's first campaign in charge. Given the fact that Edinburgh have struggled to find form under their new coach Alan Solomons, the Irish team will be confident in taking the points. Kick off is 7.35pm.
