Top of the Pops, also known as TOTP, is a British music chart television programme, made by the BBC and originally broadcast weekly between 1 January 1964 and 30 July 2006. It was traditionally shown every Thursday evening on BBC1, except for a short period on Fridays in late 1974, before being again moved to Fridays in 1996, and then to Sundays on BBC Two in 2005. Each weekly programme consisted of performances from some of that week's best-selling popular music artists, with a rundown of that week's singles chart. Additionally, there was a special edition of the programme on Christmas Day (and usually, until 1984, a second such edition a few days after Christmas), featuring some of the best-selling singles of the year.
Fearne Cotton and Reggie Yates look back at some of the biggest music stories from the past year. There is also performances from Coldplay, Jess Glynne, Ellie Goulding, Lunchmoney Lewis, Sigma, Rita Ora, Hozier, Years and Years, OMI, James Bay and Fleur East. The Christmas number one is also announced.
Fearne Cotton and Reggie Yates present a New Year's special of the show with performances from DJ KDA, Tinie Tempah and Katy B, The Vaccines, Sigala, Jess Glynne, The Vamps, Years and Years, Lost Frequencies, Grace, Nick Jonas, Ellie Goulding and The Maccabees.
Top Of The Pops returns this Christmas for an hour-long celebration of all things pop.
The festive TV favourite will review 2016's year in music with a line-up of some of the biggest musical names of the year, including Clean Bandit featuring Anne Marie, DNCE, Olly Murs, Skepta, Jonas Blue featuring Dakota, Zara Larsson, Calum Scott, Kungs, James Arthur, Craig David and Louisa Johnson.
Fearne Cotton and Reggie Yates will host the hour-long special, which will conclude with the all-important Christmas Number 1.
