|The stars of The Big Reunion having a Wizzard time recording Roy's Christmas classic|
In the above article, Roy candidly writes: "Fast-forward to 2013 and I find I’m ready to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the song. I never thought, back in 1973, that people would still be listening to it after all this time. It wasn’t even the biggest-selling Christmas record of that year. Now it’s just been adopted by The Big Reunion for the TV show’s challenge to The X Factor for the festive chart-topper. People from Blue, B*witched, Atomic Kitten, 5ive, Liberty X and Honeyz are teaming up for it. I’m absolutely delighted. From a songwriter’s point of view, it’s always really interesting to hear other people’s interpretation of your music. I’m looking forward very much to hearing their version of the song. I wish them all the very best of luck and success, and hope that this charity campaign for ITV’s Text Santa gets all the support that it truly deserves."
