The magic of Christmas has finally hit Oxford Street as Robbie Williams flicked the famous switch this week in front of a 20,000-strong crowd. The former Take That star lit up the heart of London as he pressed the button with the help of former Spice Girls singer and Heart FM presenter Emma Bunton.
Robbie is currently celebrating his chart-topping tune Candy, in addition to fatherhood after his wife Ayda gave birth in September. Nevertheless, he took some time out to bring festive cheer to the capital and was joined by the likes of boy band Lawson and songstress Leona Lewis who also performed at the Christmassy occasion.
Speaking at the event, the Angels singer said: "Tonight's event was incredible – the Oxford Street crowds were amazing and it was fantastic being part of the celebrations."

I know it's about to snow and I know the recent hot weather is nothing more than a blip but summer's just round the corner and that means a new set of sporting events are imminent - and if you, like me, are excited by that then read on!
When I used to play cricket the early season always presented mixed
emotions; delighted the season was about to start but upset by the fact
you had to wear two jumpers and that your hands experienced a pain men
can only presume comes close to child birth when you didn't time a catch
quite right. One on the end of the fingers in May is man pain. My
cricket playing days are few and far between now but, if I still played,
I would be looking for some good deals for new spikes, whites, bats and pads. Doing some research it appears these guys look to be offering some good free delivery at the very least.
It is with pain and anguish that I use this week's post to inform you of my current ailment. It seems that I have become afflicted with the curse of the 5150, a condition that will take a rather hefty amount of cash to cure.
