Miranda Hart ditches Christmas gifts

2014-12-27 18:18

Los Angeles - Miranda Hart never keeps perfume people buy her for Christmas.

The Miranda star thinks buying a fragrance for someone else is very ''risky'', because it is so personal but she is never impressed with the scents she receives.

She said: ''I think it's risky buying people scent because it's so subjective. I don't know whether I get given a lot of it because people are trying to tell me I smell, but I always end up passing it on because the ones I seem to get given are quite dog breath-y.''

Although she's picky about her presents Miranda loves watching festive movies over the holiday period and though she owns her favourite Elf on DVD, she will stop whatever she is doing if she sees the Will Ferrell movie is on TV.

The comedian - who ended her sitcom Miranda with two specials this Christmas - said: ''I know it's Christmas when I first see Elf in the TV schedules.

''It's my favourite Christmas film and although I own the DVD, whenever it's on TV, I like to quickly abort all work and other important activities, get a hot chocolate and watch. Christmas is on.''
