At Last - Wham Set For Xmas Number One 33 Years After Releasing Last Christmas
With George Michael riding high in the charts this week, William Hill believe that it is odds on (4/6) that ‘Last Christmas’ will be the official Christmas number one this year. Ed Sheeran is the nearest challenger at 4/1 and the X Factor is a lengthy 8/1 to clinch the top spot, showing just how far the show has fallen in the ratings.
“It is one of the great injustices in music history that Last Christmas did not make it to number one and we fully expect that wrong to be righted this year,” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.
William Hill Christmas Number One: 4/6 Wham, 4/1 Ed Sheeran, 8/1 Adele, 8/1 David Bowie, 8/1 X Factor Winner, 14/1 Justin Bieber, 25/1 Little Mix, 33/1 Ariana Grande, 40/1 Rihanna, 40/1 Stormzy, 50/1 Mariah Carey, 50/1 Sam Smith 50/1 Sir Cliff Richard, 66/1 Katy Perry, 100/1 The Pogues
