Oxford Street Christmas LightsX Factor judge Cheryl Fernandez-Versini (better known as Cheryl Cole) officially turns on the crowd-pulling Oxford Street Christmas Lights on 6th November, lighting up London's most famous shopping street with 1,778 baubles and 750,000 LED energy-efficient bulbs. This year's show includes performances from Manchester boyband Rixton and singer songwriter Jess Glynne, best known for featuring on Clean Bandit's single "Rather Be", and the cast of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory as performers take to the stage at John Lewis Oxford Street. A first for this event, one aspiring artist chosen from the Talent Starts Here campaign, also gets the chance to perform in front of thousands of people.
