It's Christmas: Noddy Holder on Slade's eternal classic

20 December 2012 Last updated at 10:33 GMT

It's almost 40 years since Slade released their festive anthem, Merry Christmas Everybody.

But the band's former lead singer Noddy Holder has insisted they have no plans to re-form and rerecord the hit.

"It's its own record and it's had its own life," he said.

"There isn't a day in the year when someone doesn't shout 'It's Christmas' at me. But I love it."

BBC 4's Slade Night starts at 21:00 GMT on 21 December.
