Mark and Stuart have a 'Christmas Gift For You' this Boxing Day... singer Darlene Love will join them to discuss her music career and her work on the legendary Phil Spector Christmas album.

She features heavily on the acclaimed festive compilation 'A Christmas Gift For You From Phil Spector' with solo songs including Christmas (Baby Please Come Home), Winter Wonderland and Marshmallow World.

As the lead singer of The Blossoms, she has provided backing vocals to Tom Jones, Dionne Warwick, Marvin Gaye and Elvis Presley, to name just a few. She also featured in the 2013 Oscar-winning documentary '20 Feet From Stardom' which explores the world of backing singers.

With her Christmas hits now a soundtrack to the holiday season and her annual Christmas performances on the David Letterman TV show, Darlene is known in the USA as the 'Queen of Christmas'.

Despite not always getting credit for her work (it is, in fact, her voice on The Crystals' hit 'He's A Rebel') Darlene - following an epiphany moment while working as a maid in Beverley Hills - has seen somewhat of a career resurgence as a solo singer in recent years.

She was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2011, counts Bruce Springsteen among her many fans, and has appeared in all four Lethal Weapon movies!
