Michael Bublé's Christmas album has become the soundtrack to the festive season for millions of people around the world since its release in 2011.

Now, 10 years on, Michael is back with a special deluxe edition of the iconic album, featuring brand new songs and collaborations.

To celebrate the milestone, in a Global Player-exclusive show, Smooth's Kate Garraway chats to Michael to speak about his music, Christmas, family life and his marriage, his son’s battle with cancer, moving house and lots more.

In a revealing and at times emotional interview, Michael and Kate both open up about how the past couple of years have been a challenge for them and their family, and how Christmas provides a much-needed positive boost that we all need.
