Kicking off 2016 in style, Ore welcomed in the New Year to 13 million people on BBC1, presenting Bryan Adams Rocks Big Ben Live. And, from the banks of Westminster to the beaches of Rio de Janeiro, the year is set to reach even greater heights with Ore heading to Brazil as one of the faces of the 2016 Olympic Games.
