Game of Thrones villain and Harry Potter star David Bradley will also return for the Christmas sequel as James' father's groundskeeper Jack.

"James’ father has invited the Taylors to spend Christmas in a luxury ski resort in the Austrian Alps, so they can meet his new American girlfriend. However, Hayley’s dad Geoff insisted on handling his family’s side of the booking and something clearly got lost in translation," reads an official synopsis for the film.

"After a mix-up with transport at the airport, the two tribes end up at each other’s accommodations, on different sides of a valley and opposite ends of the Tripadvisor ratings scale.

"Can Hayley and James' relationship survive another turbulent family Christmas, or has their future together gone off-piste?"

Audiences most recently saw Butterfield on screens in the Sex Education season 4. He reprised his role as young sex therapist Otis Milburn in the final season of the hit Netflix series, which dropped on the streaming platform on September 21.

Your Christmas or Mine? 2 premieres on Prime Video on December 8.
