Hundreds of fans have started to pour into the O2 ready to see acts like Rihanna, Calvin Harris and Olly Murs at tonight's event.

Fans are beginning to fill up the O2 Arena ready for the start of the Capital FM Jingle Bell Ball tonight (3rd December) in London.

The doors opened at 4pm and excited fans have been heading into the venue to take their seats in anticipation of seeing some of the biggest artists in the world.

The Jingle Bell Ball begins this evening and will see Rihanna heading a star-studding line-up including Calvin Harris, The Wanted, Pixie Lott, Olly Murs, Jason Derulo and Labrinth.

Capital spoke to fans outside the arena earlier this evening where people were growing excited about seeing the 'We Found Love' singer on stage at tonight's event.

Olly Murs is due to open the Ball later today with a setlist from his two studio albums before heading back straight after to present on ITV's The Xtra Factor.
