Heart London to host Oxford Street event

Heart presenters Jamie Theakston and Emma Bunton will host the switch on of the Oxford Street Christmas Lights this year.

The announcement was made on Friday morning by JK and Lucy, who were standing in for Jamie and Harriet who were on holiday. The station has secured Robbie Williams, Leona Lewis and boy-band Lawson to perform at the all-ticket event on November 5th.

Robbie told JK & Lucy that his wife Ayda is a big fan of the festive season: “I didn’t used to be a Christmas guy… Then I met the wife. She really, really digs Christmas in a big, big way… Last year, our house looked like Oxford Street, to be honest with you! She was in charge of all the illuminations. It did look like a mixture between Blackpool and Oxford Street. It was wonderful, but I did get my northern head on and I was like ‘How many 50 pence pieces do we have to put in the electrical metre, darling?’ ”

For the first time this year, the Oxford Street Christmas Lights switch-on will be a ticketed event, with a 3,500 capacity golden viewing circle for those lucky enough to secure a place. Those wanting to be part of this year’s switch-on must apply for free tickets via the Heart website.
