The Take That star says it's "great to be part of the celebrations" as he's entrusted with the prestigious role.

Robbie Williams has been confirmed as the star who will be turning on the London Oxford Street Christmas lights this year.

The 'Angels' singer will also be headlining a special concert for the switch on, which will feature former X Factor champion Leona Lewis and Lawson.

"Oxford Street is a fantastic place to do your Christmas shopping and it's great to be part of the celebrations," the Take That man said of his involvement in proceedings. "I can't believe I am turning on the lights!"

It will be an extra special day for the singer, who will release his new studio album 'Take The Crown' on the same day.

He added: "I'm looking forward to performing for the amazing crowds on London's Oxford Street."

Lawson's Andy Brown couldn't contain his excitement following the announcement as he took to Twitter to reveal how he was feeling. 

"Doing a gig with @robbiewilliams - my life is officially complete," he tweeted.

Meanwhile, the singer will be appearing on this weekend's edition of The X Factor, where he will be seeing mentoring some of the show's contestants and will be performing new song 'Candy' on the live results show.
