Fearne Cotton said: "Top Of The Pops this Christmas and New Year is going to be excellent. It's my fave show to be part of, especially with the line-up this year! It's going to be huge and massively festive."
Reggie Yates added: "I'm so excited that Top Of The Pops is returning to our screens this Christmas. A silly jumper, too much lunch and TOTP make the perfect Christmas."
