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

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.
Craig said: “I’ve been recording loads of music through lockdown.
“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.”
