Actress Amber Riley is looking forward to spending time with her family this Christmas (10) - because working on Glee keeps her so busy during the rest of the year.
The curvy star shot to fame last year (09) with her portrayal of opinionated singing student Mercedes and is currently filming the show's second season.
But Riley's making sure she enjoys a relaxing break with her relatives over the festive season.
She tells Britain's Heat magazine, "I plan to spend time with my family. I don't get to see them much as I'm so busy with Glee, so I'm making sure we spend loads of holiday time together.
