It had all the traditional Christmas trimmings: 750,000 LED bulbs, X Factor’s James Arthur and a singer styled in a swimsuit and a see-through skirt.

The Oxford Street lights were turned on last night, Wednesday 12 November, by pop star Jessie J.

She was joined by Conor Arthur, James Arthur, Lisa Snowdon and Dave Berry outside Selfridges, which hosted the event.

The lights this year cost some £1.5m and were inspired by falling snowflakes.
