The 22-year-old singer beat the likes of James Blake and The Vaccines to come first on the annual countdown.

In a message on Twitter, Jessie J said:” Mmaaaann!!! Today is crazy!!! I've been up since 4 30am. Sssoo happy! Soo busy! Thank you BBC and everyone who voted.”

The singer, who recently released this single ‘Do It Like A Dude’, is due to appear on BBC Radio 1 this morning (January 7).
