Craig David reportedly signs up to perform on the Top of the Pops Christmas special.

Craig David will reportedly perform on this year's Top of the Pops Christmas special.

The 'Fill Me In' singer will perform 'Really Love' with KSI - his highest-charting hit in 17 years - alongside at least one of his classic hits.

David has enjoyed a resurgence over the last few years and last year was chosen by the BBC to headline its New Year's Eve show.

"The BBC has gone all out with securing talent for this year's Top Of The Pops Christmas special and they want it to be bigger and better than ever," a source told The Sun.

"Getting Craig to join the lineup was a real coup as he's such a legend. He'll be performing his song 'Really Love' with KSI but everyone would love it if there was time for him to throw in one of his classics.

"It's been a tough year for the industry so the Beeb is going to make this year's one-off episode as ­celebratory as possible."

Other performers in the one-off episode include Dua Lipa and MNEK.
