“TOTP” > Xmas special
A “Top Of The Pops” Christmas special will be screened next month, it has been announced.
The show, which was axed earlier this year, despite being the most famous music TV programme in the world, will reveal the 2006 festive Number One.
The Killers, Scissor Sisters, Razorlight and Gnarls Barkley are all set to appear on the one-hour special, which will be presented by Fearne Cotton, Edith Bowman and Reggie Yates.
A BBC spokesperson explained why they had decided to continue tradition with the festive programme, before insisting there are no plans for a full resurrection.
“We’re doing it because the Christmas show is such an institution, Christmas day wouldn’t be the same without it. But we have no plans to revive the weekly show.”
The last episode of “Top Of The Pops” was broadcast in September after 42 years on-air.
