I'm looking for something cheaper than 70-80 pounds :( Don't know if I'm going to find it, any other idea?

Well if your sharing, your paying half that and no, you probably won't find cheaper than that.

Do you think I could stay in Heathrow Terminal 4 from 10 to 4am when is the first bus?

Do you know if there is a way to get to Terminal 1 on 25 december at 10pm?

National Express coaches will not run that late in the evening on 25 December either.

If you do not want to pay for a car service or a black cab from the rank, consider booking at an airport hotel the night of the 25th. If you are flying with BA to LHR T5 the rate at the nearby TL is £27, but you will need to pay taxi fare to the hotel and Hoppa fare from hotel to the airport the next day. The TL Heathrow Central has rooms from £32 if you're arriving at T1 or T3, but again you will need to take a taxi from the terminal to the hotel. The next day you could take the 111 bus to Hounslow East - which has step free access - for the Underground to the city centre.

Edit: Given the choice between staying at T4 Arrivals (you will not be allowed to stay airside) and booking the TL Heathrow Central at 700 Bath Road, I'd book the TL sharpish. Yes, there is a way to travel from T4 to T1 on 25 December at 2200: taxi.

Travelling between terminals and hotels on Christmas Day won't be cheap in a taxi. Christmas Day carries a £6 extra plus the £3 airport extra, so you would be looking at the best part of £10 before you even set off, you could be looking at £25 between terminal 1 and 4!

Quite agree, hobnob, and for that reason MNJ may want to consider cutting losses and booking for the night at the TL. If s/he doesn't want to pay for a black cab or a car service to the city centre then the choice is staying at T4 Arrivals or spending a bit of money to travel to a nearby hotel.

www.justairports.com can offer a saloon car from LHR to WC2 for £48 on 25 December. MNJ, depending on where you want to go in central London you may decide that the total spend is worth it rather than lingering at the airport on the night of the 25th.
