Marge to deliver Christmas message
Marge Simpson will go head-to-head with the Queen by delivering this year's alternative Christmas message on Channel 4.
A spokesman for Channel 4 said: "The blue-haired cartoon character will address the nation from her home in Springfield."
Marge is expected to spread a message of family harmony learned from years as the long-suffering wife of Homer and mum of Bart, Lisa and Maggie reports the Evening Standard quoting The Sun.
Marge's 10-minute message will be broadcast at 3pm on Christmas Day, the same time as the Queen delivers her seasonal message.
An insider said: "Like the Queen, Marge has big hair, stays calm during problematic times, and has a troublesome husband and kids who are hard to control. She's perfect for the alternative speech."
Channel 4 poached The Simpsons from the BBC earlier this year.
The alternative speech has previously been given by the likes of Ali G and Sharon Osbourne.
Last year it was delivered by Barry and Michelle Seabourn, a Merseyside couple who appeared on Channel 4 reality show Wife Swap.
