Heart extra Xmas is available on digital radio, online or through your Alexa device, and the station will be playing nothing but seasonal hits for the next two months.

The team has promised the back-to-back Christmas anthems will provide the ''perfect soundtrack to your personal winter wonderland''.

One Twitter user wrote: ''Heart extra Xmas station is officially on the radio and yes I'm that person who's been listening.''
