Top Of The Pops line-up: Who’s performing on the Christmas special?

TOP of the Pops is an undeniable festive tradition for the BBC.

So fear not, the famous show WILL be back with a 2020 Christmas Special.

When is the Top Of The Pops Christmas Special?

This festive edition of the show will take place on Christmas day itself.

You can catch the show at 11.35am on BBC One.

Like the original series, Top Of The Pops is pre-recorded.

If you miss it, you can catch up with it on the iPlayer after it has aired.

Who is in the Top Of The Pops Christmas Special line-up?

Although the BBC are yet officially confirm the line-up, The Sun exclusively revealed Craig David will headline the show.

He will also be in good company, as Dua Lipa and MNEK will also be appearing on this festive special.

A TV insider said: “The BBC has gone all out with securing talent for this year’s Top Of The Pops Christmas special and they want it to be bigger and better than ever.

“Getting Craig to join the line-up was a real coup as he’s such a legend. He’ll be performing his song Really Love with KSI but everyone would love it if there was time for him to throw in one of his classics.

"It’s been a tough year for the industry so the Beeb is going to make this year’s one-off episode as ­celebratory as possible.”

Since teaming up with Brit rapper KSI, Craig has started working on a comeback of his own.

The singer, whose last album, The Time Is Now, was released in 2018, revealed in October 2020 how he was working on his eighth record.

“I love to think I can keep singing for ever and I will sing for as long as I can. And I hope the fans welcome that.”

Will there be a Top Of the Pops New Year Special?

Good news, the show will also be back for a New Year Special.

You can catch this episode on Monday December 30, 2020.

It will be on BBC One at 4.45pm.
