Robbie Williams is going to switch on the Oxford Street Christmas lights this evening.

He will be joining London's Heart to flick the switch and perform at the event.

Leona Lewis and Lawson will also be on stage.

It's a ticket-only event.

Robbie has told London's Heart that it is a dream come true to do the switch on, and says Christmas is a big deal in his house because his wife Ayda loves the festive season. He said: "She loves Christmas and now I'm embalmed in the spirit of Christmas every year by far too many illuminations outside the house...

"Last year our house looked like Oxford Street. She was in charge of all the illuminations, it did look like a mixture between Blackpool and Oxford Street."

Robbie's new single "Candy" is number one on the Big Top 40 and his album "Take The Crown" is released today.
