Impressive stuff...

Top of the Pops has unveiled the line-ups for this year’s festive specials – with the likes of Christine and the Queens, Sigrid, George Ezra, and more set to appear. Check out the full bill below.

The iconic BBC music show is set to return for its annual end of year instalments this month, boasting an eclectic bill featuring some of 2018’s biggest artists.

Leaning heavily on pop, the Christmas Day episode – airing at 12:30 on BBC One – will feature Anne-Marie, Clean Bandit, George Ezra, Jess Glynne, Jonas Blue with Liam Payne & Lennon Stella, Rita Ora, Rudimental with Jess Glynne and Dan Caplen, Sigrid, Tom Walker, and Zara Larsson.

Performing on the second one-hour special – airing at 17:10 on December 29 – will be Tom Grennan, Christine and the Queens, Years & Years, Tom Odell feat. Rae Morris, and BRITs Critics’ Choice nominee Lewis Capaldi.

Fearne Cotton and Radio 1’s Clara Amfo will return as presenters. The latter replaced Reggie Yates on the show last year, following controversial comments he made regarding “fat, Jewish” managers in the music industry.
