Conor Maynard: Top of the Pops return would boost record sales

Conor Maynard has thrown his support behind the rumoured revival of iconic music show Top of the Pops.

Tabloids have tipped Dermot O’Leary and Fearne Cotton to present a revamped version of the countdown show, but the BBC has yet to offer any firm plans.

The corporation said this week that it has “no current plans” to revive Top of the Pops, although rumours on social media persist that a comeback of some sort is in the works.

Speaking to Digital Spy at the British LGBT Awards tonight (April 24), Maynard offered his support for Top of the Pops returning to UK television.

“I think any more TVs I can get on the better,” he joked at first.

The ‘Can’t Say No’ singer then added more seriously: “I feel that Top of the Pops would be amazing. I grew up watching it, not religiously, but I watched it a lot when I was younger.

“It was weird when it finished as you thought it would go on forever. With record sales not at their best, anything to boost that would be amazing.”

Top of the Pops aired more than 2,200 episodes between 1964 and 2006.

The British LGBT Awards are being held tonight at The Landmark Hotel in London.
