Mariah Carey 'in talks for new Christmas special with unlimited budget'
Mariah Carey is said to be in talks with Apple about creating a follow-up TV special for Christmas 2021.

Apple TV has reportedly begun talks with Mariah Carey to make a new special for Christmas 2021.

The singer - a famous festive fan - produced and starred in Mariah Carey's Magical Christmas Special for the streaming service this year at a reported cost of £4 million.

The programme featured Carey performing a number of Christmas songs, including her signature hit 'All I Want For Christmas Is You', alongside a loose storyline involving Father Christmas enlisting her to raise festive spirits.

"Mariah created the Christmas special for Apple as a one-off but it was a runaway hit," a source told The Sun.

"No-one could have predicted its success and it went to No1 in their charts in over 100 countries. Bosses at Apple now want to secure her for another special show next year. Mariah's team are, of course, completely behind it and everyone is going to do what they can to make it happen.

"They spent over £4 million on this year's show but next year this could go even higher. Apple know the worth of Mariah and are willing to splash the cash to make a follow-up even bigger and better."

Earlier this month Carey finally hit the top spot in the UK singles chart with 'All I Want For Christmas Is You', some 26 years after it was first released.
