Promotion and live performances[edit]

There was less promotion for this single, than previous, due to Una Healy being pregnant at the time, and with tour rehearsals for the "All Fired Up Tour" taking place throughout November. However, on 1 November 2011, the band performed the track in the center of Oxford Street during the Christmas Lights switch-on. Following this, on 18 November 2011 The Saturdays performed the song at the Children in Need event, as well as on Loose Women and Daybreak the following week.

The band also performed the track during the "All Fired Up Tour" which took place throughout December. The tour was used as a key source of promotion for the song, and the album, On Your Radar. On tour, the band performed the song in female Santa Claus outfit, whilst filling the arenas, such as Wembley Arena with snow.
