LadBaby has taken an early lead in the race for Christmas number one as single Sausage Rolls For Everyone is on course to top the charts.

It would mark a fourth consecutive festive best seller for the novelty act.

Sausage Rolls For Everyone, featuring Ed Sheeran and Elton John, is a sausage roll-themed charity rework of Sheeran and Sir Elton’s own new festive track Merry Christmas, in aid of The Trussell Trust food banks.

It is currently the most downloaded track of the week and would give LadBaby – also known as YouTube couple Mark and Roxanne Hoyle – a new chart record as the first act ever to achieve four consecutive Christmas number ones.
