With the mystery over the name revealed - the big question now - who will record the theme song?

Smith, Sam Smith seems to be the name on top of everyone's list.

We've been asking some self confessed celebrity 007 fans who they think should sing the theme song.

Former X Factor judge Tulisa says if it was up to her, we'd all be dancing to the Bond theme tune in clubs.

She said: "I think we should up the ante and go for something really modern. Dance and deep house has become really popular.

"And they should go for a really big producer. Someone like Calvin Harris or Duke Dumont. I think that would be kind of epic."

"I just think he's got that voice that's so unique so powerful," said band member Una. "That classic British voice."
