"There’s something about entertaining over the festive season that makes people incredibly stressed," says Lensing. "I reckon it’s all the guests arriving for the meal."

"Christmas is an incredible occasion," he adds. "It’s one of those days that brings people together. It’s that time of the year when you can eat as much as you want, set the most beautiful table, and invite the people you love the most. And, of course, presents."
