Christmas Number One – Wham Favourite – Money For Big Shaq & Kim Wilde

William Hill make George Michael their 2/1 favourite for this year’s Christmas Number One but there have been a couple of surprising moves in the last twenty four hours which are worth noting. The first has been for Big Shaq (12/1 from 50/1), which could be this year’s anti- X factor song and Kim Wilde who is now 25/1 from 60/1.


“George Michael is the obvious choice for the Xmas one, should his fans get behind the campaign – but there is some very shrewd money coming in for both Big Shaq & Kim Wilde,” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.
