music news

ABBA's Björn Ulvaeus and legendary English actor Ian McKellen have teamed up to knit Christmas videos to ABBA's new Christmas song together.

In the clip shared to the legendary actor’s Instagram on Sunday (21 November), the pair were seen sat on a sofa while wearing matching fair isle jumpers and blue jeans.

In their hands, they both held knitting needles and Abba-branded Christmas jumpers, which they appeared to be working on making together. As the camera pans out, McKellen and Ulvaeus are shown to be seated beneath a giant Abba banner and surrounded by sewing equipment.

The words: “Merry Christmas from ABBA and Ian McKellen” then appear on the screen.
