The First Episode Of Micah Richards And Roy Keane's 'Driving Home For Christmas' Has Dropped And It's A Must Watch

The hilarious first episode of Micah Richards and Roy Keane's 'Driving Home For Christmas' has just dropped to get us all into the festive spirit.

In the ride along video released by Sky Bet, the Sky Sports pundits exchange gifts, discuss their Christmas plans and argue over their favourite festive movies as Richards drives them both home after a match.

The episode begins with Richards picking Keane up from outside Old Trafford and the former Manchester City defender wastes no time in laying into the Manchester United legend.

“You’ve not been arguing with fans have you,” jokes Richards, alluding to an incident last month when Keane was confronted by an angry United fan.

The pair then exchange Christmas gifts, with Keane handing Richards a signed copy of his memoir ‘The Second Half’.

Richards briefly leaves the car before returning with a Christmas jumper on, which features Keane’s face.

He then gifts the former United captain his own jumper, complete with Richards’ trademark grin on the front.

The pair then discuss their Christmas plans and favourite festive movies, with Richards opting for 'Home Alone' and Keane perhaps surprisingly picking the heart-warming ‘It’s A Wonderful Life’.

Conversation moves on to Manchester United and when Richards asks Keane why he has never had the opportunity to take charge of the club, unlike his former team-mates Ryan Giggs, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Michael Carrick, he jokes: “They can’t afford me!”

The episode ends with Richards attempting to secure an invite to Keane’s house on Christmas Day.

Keane replies: “No problem! I’ll have the dogs waiting for you… 'Go on... kill!'”

The episode has already proved to be a big hit with fans on social media.

“You can see there's an honest and genuine respect for one another every time this pair are together... Micah is one person you can't see Keano ever falling out with... Always a good laugh with this pair,” wrote one viewer on YouTube.

“I had a smile on my face all the way through this, thank you,” added another.

Let’s hope the second episode, which will be released on Tuesday, is just as entertaining!
