Clara Amfo will be filling the shoes of Reggie Yates for Christmas Top of the Pops.
Top of the Pops (TOTP) may have come to an end over a decade ago in 2006, but it remains one of the nation’s favourites. Every Christmas, we see a special episode dedicated to the biggest and best songs and performers of the year – and it’s a highlight of festive TV schedules. The show has not had a new presenter in over a decade, but it’s all change this year, because there’s a new kid in town.
Previous presenter Reggie Yates has stepped down from his job presenting the Christmas special after making some controversial remarks. Though he’s sure to be missed and his are big shoes to fill, his replacement, Clara Amfo, is sure to do a great job of it.
She’s on the books here at talent agency MN2S, and when it comes to entertainment ideas for events you could do much worse. As a seasoned presenter both on TV and the radio, she’s a great choice for roles such as acting as compere or presenting awards. Her lively personality means she’ll be a hit with any audience, and her musical background and personal style could make her a great brand ambassador.
Who is the new TOTP presenter?
Best known for her work on Radio 1, Clara Amfo presents the mid-morning show on weekdays, a slot she took over from Fearne Cotton – her TOTP co-presenter – in 2015. Prior to that she worked for Nickelodeon, CBBC and Kiss FM, as well as BBC Radio 1Xtra, so she’s experienced in presenting work of all kinds.
She said that one of the DJs she most looks up to is Sara Cox: “I keep mentioning Sara Cox in interviews and I swear she’s going to think I’m obsessed with her. But I remember listening to her and thinking, “I really like this lady. She’s just chilled, she can tell a good story.””
In her spare time, Clara loves tending to her large collection of trainers and is on a mission to try out all of the best burgers in London.
