IT'S beginning to look a lot like Christmas…
Which brings the ultimate festive question: which artists are close to securing the Christmas Number One?
What was 2020's Number One Christmas song?
YouTuber LadBaby has managed to secure not one, not two, but three Christmas number one's since 2018!
LadBaby – Mark Hoyle -was crowned Christmas chart-topper with Don’t Stop Me Eatin’, (2020), I Love Sausage Rolls (2019) and We Built This City (2018).
In true festive spirits, the profits made from the singles went straight to a foodbank charity – The Trussell Trust.
The YouTuber was lucky enough to bag the Christmas Number One in 2020, but will he have the same festive cheer in 2021?
Who are the 2021 Christmas Number One contenders?

Elton John and Ed Sheeran have certainly had their fair share of hits between them.
Prior to LadBaby's success, Ed bagged 2017’s Christmas number one with his hit – Perfect.
