We’ve just been handed the Radio One Christmas Day schedule and pop fans – prepare to be impressed.

Between 1 pm and 7 pm on Christmas Day Radio One will be packed to the rafters full of pretty much a who’s who of the world of pop.

From 1 pm to 2 pm, the One Direction boys will be taking over the airways with a prerecorded Christmas Day playlist until they hand over to Demi Lovato between 2 pm and 3 pm.

Then, between 3 pm and 4 pm Troye Sivan will be on air to entertain you while you sort out all your new pressies until Little Mix arrive at 4 pm until 5 pm.

The Vamps will finish things off with their 5 pm – 6 pm slot.

Seriously, who needs the Queen’s Speech when you have this lot!

Speaking about their show, One Direction have said: “The best present this Christmas will be coming round to Alice Levine’s and sharing the day with the Radio 1 listeners.”

The Vamps added: “We’re so excited to give the BBC Radio 1 DJ’s a run for their money by taking over the decks on Christmas Day playing our favourite tunes and chatting about really important things like snow, turkey vs. beef debate and presents. Come party with us at 6 pm. The playlist is mega!”

Head of Programmes at Radio 1 and 1Xtra, Rhys Hughes, said: “I’m absolutely delighted to announce such a stellar line-up for Radio 1 on Christmas day. Along with the Christmas No.1 on The Official Chart with Greg James, it should be a great listen, bringing the nation together on Christmas Day.”
