Dua Lipa, Ed Sheeran and more to play Top Of The Pops over Christmas

Dua Lipa, Ed Sheeran and Craig David are among the artists set to appear on Top Of The Pops this Christmas.

BBC One will broadcast two festive editions of the show, with Rita Ora and James Arthur, Clean Bandit, The Script, Bastille and Paloma Faith also lined up to perform.

Fearne Cotton and Reggie Yates will present the two, one-hour specials that will celebrate the biggest hits and most successful acts of the year.

Cotton said: “Hosting the Christmas and New Year specials of the biggest pop party on TV alongside my mate Reggie is definitely one of my Christmas highlights and something I look forward to every year.”

Yates added: “Christmas just wouldn’t be the same without Top Of The Pops and it’s become an annual tradition that I look forward to. With another great line-up in store, the Christmas and New Year specials are not to be missed.”
