You should be all right it may not be possible to through check your bags!!So when checking in ask if it at all possible for a suitable first off sticker to go on it. Then , if not, get your bags at Gatwick and take the train to South Terminal and join the L O N G queue for your checkin. Again just see if you can edge a little forward.
The best way would be to jusy have cabin bag but I suspect that you will have some Christmas presents(by the way dont wrap them) and will have too much for hand bag.It does look a little tight to me but you would have had to fly down the night before otherwise. hope there is no snow
