Leona and Westlife bring Christmas cheer to London's Oxford Street

8 NOVEMBER 2007

Two of the brightest forces from the world of pop were helping get the British capital in the mood for the festive season this week, when Leona Lewis and Irish crooners Westlife switched on the annual Christmas lights in London's Oxford Street.

Thousands had gathered to see the famous shopping street transformed in a sea of twinkling bulbs. After the switch was flicked, there were performances from X Factor winner Leona - currently at the top of the UK charts with her single Bleeding Love - the Westlife boys, and the cast of West End show Mary Poppins.

Leona, whose new album Spirit is released on Monday, revealed her plans for an intimate family Christmas. "I'm going to spend (the day) at home just chilling out with my family," she said. "I'm going to open my presents and just veg out."
