Speaking to NOW magazine, father-of-four said likened his home to a scene out of Home Alone.
He said: ‘There are kids everywhere and we do all the traditional stuff. The mince pies and carrots are left out the night before, then the kids wake up in the morning with stockings at the end of their beds.
‘We have a big English breakfast, then sit in a circle to open our presents. We have lunch, go for a walk, then pass out in front of the TV with chocolates.’
Peter and Katie have taken turns celebrating the big day with their two children since their split in 2009.
It is not known whether Katie’s two youngest children, Jett, five, and Bunny, four, will spend Christmas with Katie or Kieran.
