It will be fine reheated so long as its piping hot throughout.
We are told to cover the turkey with foil or a towel for an hour or two... but this just causes condensation that turns the skin soggy!
Any ideas? Blow torch?! Leave uncovered?!
Also.... I have 11 guests... so where do people stand on cooking the turkey the night before?!
As to how to have the skin to eat crispy. Take it off the bird the minute it’s cooked and gobble is up. It’s the best bit and shouldn’t be wasted to sogginess.
I’m not allowed to cook at Christmas. Because I do selfish things like eat all the turkey skin. And eat all the best bits.
I do have to slave away the day before and over night making the pavlova though.

Christmas Eve 2018, 4.00 pm
I have just unpacked my turkey, in your words "6-7kg free range..., etc" and it seemed a bit small. I have weighed it and checked my scales with two (labelled) work-out weights of 2.5 Kg each and your turkey comes out at an impressive 5.18 Kg. I have taken a picture of the offending bird and also of my weights.
This is really very poor, and rather late to rectify. I purposely ordered your larger bird as I have a seriously hungry crew to feed tomorrow.
This provoked an automatic reply wishing me Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
I followed up:
Thank you for your automated reply. I thought you might like an update on the underweight turkey you mis-sold me (see my previous). When I came to stuff the neck end, I found that it had been very poorly butchered. Not only was the neck skin inadequate, but (see attached photos) the skin had been punctured leaving bare flesh around the neck cavity extending onto the flesh - two gashes. Underweight, poorly butchered, I pray it will taste better than it looks.
Who does your quality control? Does anybody do quality control? The turkey you provided for me is available from Ocado at £28.82 (“typically 5.49 kg”).
I paid significantly more than this for a ‘bargain’.
I have pictures to back up this complaint.
