A Top Of The Pops Christmas Special Is Coming This Week

A Top of the Pops Christmas and New Year special is coming to our screens over the festive period - and we can't wait.

The legendary TV show, which ran for 42 years until 2006, now comes back every year for a festive one-off and if ever there's a time we need some music in our lives, it's now.

Hosted by Fearne Cotton and Clara Amfo, the two one-hour specials will air on the BBC on Christmas Day and New Year's Day respectively.

The specials were recorded earlier this year and will feature brand new performances from Celeste, Clean Bandit and Mabel, Ella Henderson and Jamie Cullum on Christmas Day; while Becky Hill and YUNGBLUD will perform in the New Year special, which will also see Fearne and Clara take a look back at the year in music.

As well as live performances, both specials will also feature sessions from the past twelve months, including performances by Miley Cyrus, Harry Styles, Lewis Capaldi and Dua Lipa.
