The New Year’s Eve edition of Top Of The Pops will see performances from Alfie Templeman, Arlo Parks, Becky Hill, Nathan Dawe featuring KSI & Ella Henderson, Sigala and James Arthur, Wes Nelson featuring Hardy Caprio, and Yungblud.

Earlier this week, it was revealed that Mariah Carey‘s ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’ could land its first ever UK Number One this week, according to the Official Charts Company.

The festive classic, which was first released in 1994, has remarkably never been Number One in the UK. The year it was released, it lost out on the top spot to East 17‘s ‘Stay Another Day’, peaking at Number Two.


As of Monday (November 30), ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’ had climbed to Number Two on the UK singles chart midweeks. It was only 900 chart sales behind the midweek Number One, Ariana Grande‘s ‘Positions’

Other Christmas tracks that have been released or announced recently, include those by Sam SmithJMSN, Shaggy, Snoop Dogg, Alanis Morissette and Justin Bieber.

Meanwhile, Yungblud, Machine Gun Kelly and Travis Barker have teamed up to release their collaborative track, titled ‘acting like that’.

The collaboration comes from Yungblud’s second album ‘WEIRD!’, which will arrive on Friday (December 4).
