Former Top Gear presenter and radio star Chris Evans is set to broadcast his show from an Ipswich primary school - after their pupils' Christmas song won a national competition.

St Matthew's C of E Primary School, in Portman Road, will welcome the famous DJ on December 20 as he presents his Virgin Radio breakfast show.

The pupils' song 'I Wanna Have Christmas Everyday' was announced as the winner of the 12 Schools of Christmas competition, defeating 300 other entries in the process.

Mr Warren added: "They will turn the school into a winter wonderland."
