Ladbaby looks to be on course to land the Christmas number one for 2020.
The vlogger could score his third Christmas number one if his latest track, Don’t Stop Me Eatin’, hits the top spot this week.
An early look at the UK chart shows YouTubers Ladbaby, real name Mark Hoyle, and his wife Roxanne are leading the charge with 80,000 sales after 48 hours. It is potentially set to be one of the biggest opening weeks of the year, according to the Official Charts Company.
Proceeds from Don’t Stop Me Eatin’ will go to food bank charity The Trussell Trust.
The pair previously got to number one in 2018 with We Built This City and in 2019 with I Love Sausage Rolls.
Behind them is Jess Glynne with This Christmas at number two, a cover of Donny Hathaway’s 1971 single which is being released as an Amazon Music exclusive.
Last year Ellie Goulding’s River, her take on Joni Mitchell’s hit, saw her bag the last number one of the decade thanks to her team up with Amazon Music. Could Jess share the same success this time?
Festive classics also feature, with All I Want For Christmas Is You by Mariah Carey at three, and Last Christmas by Wham! at four.
Liam Gallagher rounds off the top five with All You’re Dreaming Of which has been released on limited edition vinyl in aid of Action For Children. It is the second best-seller of the week so far after Ladbaby.
Elsewhere on the chart is the politically charged Boris Johnson Is A Fucking Cunt by British comedian The Kunts. The 56-second long track is in at number 19.
The Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Choir, with their cover of Justin Bieber’s Holy, is at 33 while Justin himself is further up the charts with Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree at seven.
The 2020 Christmas number one will be announced on BBC Radio 1’s The Official Chart on December 25 from 2pm.
