If I peel them tonight, won't they go grey? Any tips?

Peel them and put them in a bowl of cold water. They should be fine.

Peel them and put in a bowl or saucepan of very cold water (I always add couple of ice cubes) and they should be fine.
Merry Christmas fsmile

snap Rousette - I always count, then add a few more, they always go..... But yes, just make sure they are totally covered.
I do sprouts as well the same way - keeps them really crisp

A trick I learned in a professional kitchen, it helps keep the spuds for 2-3 days if you add a slice of bread to the top of the water. And always rinse and replace with fresh water before cooking.

I'm going to partly roast mine. I've a Mary Berry Christmas cookery book and it has lots of tips on pre-preparing. She says you can peel and parboil the day before too, but I'm going to peel, parboil and then roast for 30 mins, take out, pour most of the fat away and keep cool until Christmas Day and then do the last 30 mins after the roast comes out of the oven and is resting.

I've only done it once before (dh has done the meal the last few years) but it worked really well, lovely crispy potatoes.
