Guy Ritchie is overjoyed to be spending Christmas Day with his children, reports.

The Sherlock Holmes director — who has nine-year-old son Rocco and adopted Malawian son David Banda with singer Madonna — is going all out to make the day “traditional” and special for the youngsters after his ex-wife gave permission for them to spend the day at his home.

A source said: “Guy is really pleased, and cannot quite believe he and Madonna came to such an amicable arrangement. He is a huge fan of Christmas and wants to do everything by the book, very traditionally.”

The British filmmaker is so determined to make the day memorable, he has promised to rustle up a delicious roast turkey lunch with all the trimmings and “spoil them rotten.”

The source explained to the Daily Mirror newspaper: “This means stockings hanging from under the kids’ beds, presents under the tree and a massive turkey, Brussels sprouts, chestnuts, the works.

“When Guy and Madonna were together they didn’t really celebrate Christmas Day due to Madonna’s staunch Kabbalah beliefs. Now that he's a single man, Guy is determined to spoil them rotten and give the youngsters a Christmas they'll never forget.”
