The special will see Lady GaGa teaming up with The Muppets for special performances of songs from her latest album ARTPOP as well as comedy sketches and a sneak peek at the forthcoming film Muppets Most Wanted.
Katie Keenan, head of acquisitions with Channel 5, said: "What a combination: world-class performer Lady Gaga together with the greatest family entertainers, The Muppets! This special will be a real treat for Channel 5 viewers this Christmas."
The special will also feature special guest appearances from Elton John, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and RuPaul. Gaga previously said of the special: "I knew it wouldn't be a complete night of laughter and memories without The Muppets! Can't wait to see the gang again and I hope Miss Piggy's not still mad about Kermit. We're just friends!"
The special will air this Thursday at 9:30pm on ABC in North America.
