The Capital Weekender with Meg McHugh 10pm - 1am
As we countdown to the big reveal of our Jingle Bell Ball 2016 line-up we take a look at the acts who have taken to the #CapitalJBB stage the most over the past few years.
With a new album on the way and 'Shout Out To My Ex' STILL stuck in our heads, the Little Mix girls wouldn't look out of place on the Jingle Bell Ball stage. They NAILED their performances in 2012, 2013 and 2015. (Picture: PA Photos)
With a host of the BIGGEST hits under his belt from his impressive career, could Tinie be joining the '5 appearances' crew? He's already hit the #CapitalJBB stage as a main artist and special guest in 2010, 2012, 2013 and 2015.
Mother Monster shut DOWN our Balls in 2009 and 2013 with knock out headline performances. Could she be adding some festive cheer in 2016?
The 'Talk Dirty' singer made his first #CapitalJBB appearance in 2010 and came straight back to the show in 2011 and in 2013. He rocked the stage most recently at 2015's ball - so is he a potential act for our 2016 show?
So in the past year they've lost a member and announced they're taking a well earned rest... But could the lads manage to squeeze in a cheeky performance at our EPIC winter event? Our ears are still ringing from the screaming crowds in 2011 and 2012.
With triumphant performances in 2014 and 2015, could Joe and Cameron be coming back to perform for you in 2016? Picture: Richard Johnson
The 'Bitch Better Have My Money' singer's debut was back in 2008 at the very first Jingle Bell Ball. Ri-Ri then returned to London in 2011 to headline our Saturday show. Is it time for our Bajan beauty to find love in a JBB place once more?
He's potentially the BIGGEST UK talent right now, and with unforgettable performances in 2011 and 2014 we'd LOVE to see him hit the #CapitalJBB stage again in 2016! (Picture: Richard Johnson)
The 'How Deep Is Your Love' star would be a great addition to our 2016 show, having infected the 2011, 2012 and 2015 crowds with some SERIOUS party vibes! Could he be back this year?
The 'Good Feeling' star joins the 'TWO shows club' with appearances in 2009 and 2010. Could we see the US rapper working up a sweat as this year's show?
After making their debut with 'Can We Dance' back in 2013, we welcomed Brad & the boys back to our stage in 2014 and 2015. They've recently released their hot new single 'All Night' with a brand new sound - so could we be hearing it during their fourth JBB performance?! (Picture: Scott Salt)
Sam may have only made his solo JBB debut last year, but he first took to our stage in 2013 providing vocals for Disclosure. Could we be hearing Sam belt out the new Bond theme in 2016? (Picture: PA)
The '#ThatPower' star made his JBB debut with The Black Eyed Peas in 2010, followed by a surprise appearance during Cheryl's set at our 2012 show. Could we see Will.i.am on stage this Christmas?
With a brand new album released earlier this year, could we see Andy, Ryan, Adam and Joel do the hat-trick and return to our #CapitalJBB stage? (Picture: Danny North)
The 'Hall Of Fame' singers made their #CapitalJBB debut at the very first event back in 2008. The guys then returned in 2010, 2012 AND 2014! Will we see The Script perform for a record breaking FIFTH time in 2016?
The former X Factor star is the undisputed KING of the Jingle Bell Ball! With energetic performances making us SWEAT in 2010, 2011, 2013 AND last year's show, we're crossing our fingers that the 'Kiss Me' star will make it a record breaking five appearances for 2016!
With appearances on both nights in 2010, and more performances in 2011 and 2012, The Wanted are firmly placed in the JBB hall of fame. OBVIOUSLY they won't be taking centre stage this year, but with Nathan Syke's solo career going from strength to strength, will we be hearing 'Kiss Me Quick' this Christmas? (Picture: Richard Johnson)
The 'Mama Do The Hump' stars have had our #CapitalJBB crowd getting down with the trumpets as a surprise guest in 2011, and with their own slot on the line-up in 2012 and 2013. Have Harley and Jordan got the energy to join us once again in 2016?
London's O2 Arena has already had Jessie's killer vibratos shake its roof THREE times. Could we be getting the 'Bang Bang' treatment again in 2016? (Picture: Danny North)
You know the saying "always the bridesmaid, never the bride"? We guess that's how Ella Eyre feels with her JBB performances. She first hit our stage supporting Rudimental, and again the following year providing vocals for Sigma. Could she follow on Sam Smith's footsteps and take the spotlight in 2016? (Picture: PA)
We've seen the 'Boomerang' singer make her JBB debut with the Pussycat Dolls in 2008 and return for a solo set in 2010. Could this be the year that the former X Factor judge comes back to the Ball?
The 'Earthquake' singer made his debut on the JBB stage in 2010, came back for a second time with a killer set in 2011! Is it time for Labrinth to make his way back to our #CapitalJBB crowd?
The 'Changed The Way You Kiss Me' star made his JBB debut in 2010 and returned once more to get the crowd bouncing at our 2012 show. Can the UK rapper tear himself away from married life to score a Jingle Bell Ball hat-trick?
We went 'Bonkers' for Dizzee in 2009 and 2013, but could he ever come back for a third performance? (Picture: Richard Johnson)
They had it all last year, with TWO unforgettable performances in 2014 and their 2013 debut, the Union J boys have a healthy hat trick of JBB shows under their belts. (Picture: Scott Salt)
Frankie, Mollie, Una, Vanessa and Rochelle have performed at the event FOUR times so far. The 'Disco Love' singers performed at the very first Jingle Bell Ball back in 2008 and returned back for the following three years.
And finally... Could the dynamic duo be heading to the UK to perform at this year's event. You can probably already guess the answer to this one, but you never know what could happen at our JBB shows!
Excuse us for getting all nostalgic, but JLS's energetic performances in 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012 still get us all hyped up. While the lads are no longer together, Marvin Humes DID get the pre-party started last year, could he do the same in 2016? (Picture: Richard Johnson)
The 'All About Tonight' singer made her Jingle Bell Ball debut in 2009 and then returned to the famous stage once more in 2011. Could Pixie make her return to pop at this year's show?
