    Rihanna has got a nice Christmas bonus coming her way after reportedly being offered £5 million to flick the switch on the festivities at Westfield’s Stratford shopping centre.

    The songstress, who lit up Westfield in Shepherd’s Bush two years ago, will apparently turn on the Xmas lights and perform a mini concert for 20,000 fans at the mall close to the Olympic Park.

    A source told The Sun newspaper: ‘Rihanna’s thrilled she has been asked again.

    ‘She knows it’s a big deal and is totally up for it — if it fits in with her schedule. Westfield have had a great year due to the Olympics and want to fork out to celebrate.

    ‘Even though the final contract is still being thrashed out, they’re prepared to pay up to £5 million for her. Organisers are
    expecting around 20,000 people to swamp the park.

    ‘The Spice Girls were also discussed but Rihanna came out as the artist of choice.’
