Cheryl Fernandez-Versini got into the festive spirit as she switched on the Christmas lights on London's Oxford Street

The X Factor judge - who looks set to claim her fifth number one single with I Don't Care on Sunday - was joined by chart-topping group Rixton and singer Jess Glynne at the event, hosted by the street's John Lewis store.

Thousands gathered to help count down to the moment when she hit the button, turning on a display featuring 750,000 lower-energy LED bulbs, strung along the length of the famous London street.
