Christmas Number Ones Quiz

Christmas number Ones Quiz

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 Liam Gallagher, Jess Glynne, Little Mix and Robbie Williams.


The former Oasis star will be challenging with All You’re Dreaming Of, while Glynne’s cover of Donny Hathaway’s This Christmas is also in the running.


Hoping to strike festive gold are also Robbie Williams’ Can’t Stop Christmas and Sam Fender’s Winter Song. Plus Becky Hill’s Forever Young, Nathan Dawe and Little Mix’s No Time For Tears.


However, we’ll be rooting for new Bake Off host, Matt Lucas who has put a festive spin on his successful charity song Thank You Baked Potato, which he released earlier this year to raise money to feed NHS workers. This time round the beneficiaries will be FareShare.




FareShare is the UK’s national network of charitable food redistributors, made up of 18 independent organisations. Together, they take good quality surplus food from right across the food industry and get it to almost 11,000 frontline charities and community groups, providing enough food to create over a million meals for vulnerable people.


So get ready for Merry Christmas, Baked Potato. And the best of luck to Matt!!
