Hey Duggee voice artists Sander Jones (who is also series director for Hey Duggee), Lucy Montgomery, Anelisa Lamona and Adam Longworth, plus Hey Duggee creator Grant Orchard, also feature.
Alexander Armstrong commented: “Christmas is the most musical time of the year and it’s been a privilege and an absolute delight to contribute vocals for Hey Duggee Deck The Halls alongside the utterly brilliant BBC Singers, Beatboxing extraordinaire Beardyman and my wonderful Hey Duggee colleagues. I’m sure this lively track will bring lots of joy and merriment to families up and down the country over the festive season.”
