"The Christmas special will be an hour-long celebration of all things pop, reviewing 2016’s year in music with a line-up of some of the biggest musical names of the year," BBC said in a statement yesterday. The line-up also includes Zara Larsson, Craig David, Olly Murs, and more.

During an interview with The Evening Standard in early November, Skepta announced his plans for an upcoming film based on the story of his seminal grime label, Boy Better Know.
