LadBaby set to be crowned Christmas number one for second straight year – beating Stormzy and Ed Sheeran

ON A ROLL

YOUTUBE prankster Ladbaby is set to land the Christmas No1 tomorrow - for the second year running.

His charity song about sausage rolls has climbed to the top spot — beating Stormzy, Lewis Capaldi and Dua Lipa.

The vlogger, real name Mark Hoyle, will join the Beatles and the Spice Girls as the only artists who have bagged a festive chart-topper in consecutive years.

The track, I Love Sausage Rolls, is a cover of Joan Jett’s 1981 hit I love Rock ‘n’ Roll and the money made is being given to foodbank charity The Trussell Trust.

Ladbaby, 31, had sold 77,988 copies of the single this week by yesterday — way ahead of Stormzy and Ed Sheeran’s song Own It which shifted 49,252 to reach number two.

At three is Wham!’s Last Christmas and in fourth is Lewis Capaldi’s Before You Go, while Mariah Carey’s All I Want For Christmas Is You is all the way down in 7th having sold 28,065 copies this week.

Last year his parody We Built This City on Sausage Rolls beat Ava Max and Ariana Grande to the top spot.

The track raised enough for 70,000 food packages where were given out to people struggling to afford to eat.
