It’s that time again when we dust down our Christmas Number Ones quiz to see who’s the Wisest Man or Woman when it comes to knowing their festive hits.
But before that this year’s contenders for the top slot have been announced – so let’s have a look at them.
Leading the pack are LadBaby ft. Ed Sheeran & Elton John, Adele, Gary Barlow & Sheridan Smith and (deep breath) Craig Revel Horwood & Rietta.
Comeback icons ABBA are in the race for their very first time with Little Things, their first ever Christmas single. A song that reflects on the joy of Christmas morning, the track was released on CD on December 3, with a video to accompany the song.
Also hoping to strike festive gold George Ezra’s Come on Home for Christmas last appeared in the Official Singles Chart in 1994, when Bon Jovi’s cover peaked at Number 7..
But our money is on Elton John and Ed Sheeran. If they don’t top the charts with their duet, Merry Christmas, which landed straight in at Number 1 on the Official Singles Chart on its release – they’ve got an even better chance with Ladbaby.
Yes, LadBaby are back and want to make history as the first act in UK chart history to achieve four consecutive Christmas Number 1s. To do so, they’ve roped in Ed Sheeran and Elton John for a remix of the duo’s new festive single. Of course, it’s sausage roll based – so Merry Christmas has been transformed into Sausage Rolls For Everyone.
Ed had reached out to LadBaby following their historic third consecutive Christmas Number 1 last year, and the plan was made for a very festive team-up to see if they could break the all-time chart record.
So those the contenders this year. In the meantime test your Christmas Knowledge of years gone by with our deceptively simple quiz…
