Christmas Number 1 may not be as big of a thing as it was a decade or so ago thanks to the rise in streaming platforms but one duo are looking to make it five years straight on top of the charts for Christmas Day. Can they do it? We take a look at the odds and their potential rivals…
If you are a fuddy duddy like me then you might not be au fait with LadBaby but they are a YouTube duo who have dominated the charts at Christmas for four years straight. Starting in 2018, they have been top dog with their food based songs that have raised significant amounts of money for charities. This year nothing has come out as to whether they’ll be going for five straight but they are still the 4/5 favourites with whatever song they come up with.
Betfred have their top competition as a re-release of a song that is more of my era. David Baddiel, Frank Skinner & The Lightning Seeds have re-recorded Three Lions with updated lyrics to include the fact that apparently it is coming home for Christmas. They are 3/1 to be top at Christmas but we know this is very dependent on England going deep in Qatar. If they fail to reach the final, I imagine their chances of topping the charts once more seem doomed.
Lewis Capaldi has released the second song from his Broken By Desire To Be Heavenly Sent album and could this song entitled Pointless, which was co-written by Ed Sheeran be a contender? At 10/1 he’s the joint-third favourite along with a very well known sporting figure…
That person is none other than Tyson Fury. The World Heavyweight Champion fresh off a comprehensive win over Dereck Chisora has recorded his own version of the Neil Diamond hit ‘Sweet Caroline’ and might do better than many think.
Comedian Jason Manford is also a 10/1 shot having released an album full of school assembly songs. The song ‘Assembly Burgers’ is his chosen one in an attempt to make an impact on the Christmas charts.
The likes of Mariah Carey, Wizard and Wham! Have plenty of traction at this time of year thanks to famous Christmas songs but all are considered longshots to top the tree coming in at 33/1 for Mariah and 50/1 for the other two. The Pogues’ famous Christmas hit is 25/1.
