When speaking with TV WEEK, Delta spoke about the diverse range of guests on Christmas with Delta this year.

Delta also spilled about her favourite Christmas songs, both to listen to and to sing herself.

“It changes every year. I used to be a lot more traditional and I used to love O Holy Night. But Only Santa Knows, the song I wrote, was kind of the song that kicked off the Christmas album and the Christmas show, so I definitely think Only Santa Knows is one of my favourites. Each year we’ve sung it on the Christmas special as a staple and it’s still one of my favourites to sing.”

When asked about what she’s excited for in 2024, Delta told TV WEEK that she’s “looking forward to all of it.”

She continued, “I think that it’s been a huge year. From touring Europe to Innocent Eyes coming full circle, and touring around the country. We’re just really excited for some incredible projects we have, and looking forward to more music and more travel and more shows! Just going with the flow.”

Christmas with Delta airs this Sunday, 17th December at 7.00pm on Channel 9 and 9Now.
