Showaddywaddy were featured in a Channel 4 programme at 10:00pm on Saturday 10th December entitled 'Bring Back The Christmas No. 1'. The band performed on a brand new Christmas record called "I'm Goin' Home" which has been written and produced by Rob Davis (ex Mud guitarist) who has had a lot of success recently with Kylie Minogue, Rachel Stevens & many more. Unfortunately, due to time constraints at EMI, the single will now not be released on on Monday 12th December as originally planned. However, it is available to download from the Channel 4 web-site Downloads section. The artist is shown as just 'David Essex', something which the band are not happy about!
Other artists featured on the record are members of Slade, Jona Lewie & David Essex. David Essex peforms the main vocals with Dave Bartram harmonising and doing answerbacks. The rest of Showaddywaddy provide backing vocals.

Dave Bartram recalls, "We blew them off stage that night! It's unbelievable really as Live Aid is at number 50".
