Dermot O'Leary And Fearne Cotton To Present New Series Of Revamped 'Top Of The Pops'?

‘Top Of The Pops’ could be about to return to our screens, with Fearne Cotton and Dermot O’Leary co-presenting the show, according to reports.


The original series of the weekly chart countdown ran for over 40 years, before being eventually shelved in 2006.

However, with a number of British acts like Sam Smith, Rita Ora and Ed Sheeran all doing well in the charts - and the announcement the weekly pop chart will soon be announced on a Friday instead of a Sunday - The Mirror have claimed that the show could be about to make a comeback.

A source tells the newspaper: “‘Top Of The Pops’ is a great brand name and the BBC are keen to use it. Some at the highest level are massive supporters of the plan and have given the go-ahead.

“The new Friday night charts could be the perfect tie-in - with ‘Top Of The Pops’ a brilliant start to the weekend.”
