Coldplay are to top the bill for this year's Christmas Top Of The Pops with a one-off performance of their festive single.

The band released a low-key new single Christmas Lights last week and will be seen when the show returns to BBC One on December 25.

Coldplay have promised fans "a unique, one-off performance" in a message on their website.

Also appearing on the TOTP special will be Tinie Tempah, Ellie Goulding and JLS.

The much-loved show was axed by the BBC in the summer of 2006 after more than 40 years, but it still returns for Christmas specials.

Presenters Fearne Cotton and Reggie Yates will host the show, which will be screened at 2pm and also features Cee-lo Green, Scouting For Girls, Eliza Doolittle and Plan B. It will finish with the Christmas number one.

Viewers will be able to take part in a singalong version via the BBC red button.

Reggie said: "Top Of The Pops is and always has been part of my Christmas and it wouldn't be the same without it."
