Ray, Zig and Zag and Dustin the Turkey are promising The Den fans "big news" on RTÉ One this evening - their last show before the Christmas Special. 

Planet Zog's greatest have tweeted: "Ooh, big news coming out about the Christmas No.1 reboot soon!

"Song remixed, new video cut (featuring 100's of #TheDen viewers who sent videos and vocals in ??) And new artwork from a special friend of ours. All for charity."

It has been a triumphant live show return for the gang since the pals took over on RTÉ One last month. Here are some of the highlights:
