Military Wives Choir To Beat Little Mix To Christmas No. 1?


"Little Mix will be unstoppable in the race for Christmas Number One", "there's no point trying to compete with X Factor contestant" - these are the sort of comments that have reared their heads in recent days, as they tend to every year. Indeed this week one of the kings of the hit Christmas single, Sir Cliff Richard, was complaining that the show had made it extremely hard for anyone else to get a look in when it came to topping the UK singles charts come Christmas. Though statistical evidence would suggest this is the case, with five of the last six festive top spots going to 'X Factor UK' winners, it's not stopped many fan groups being set up on Facebook in an attempt to hi-jack the seemingly inevitable success of the reality stars - it was, after all, a fan-led campaign which meant Rage Against The Machine's 'Killing In The Name' hit top spot in 2009.

This year however we might not even need that, as reports from various retailers suggest that an unlikely candidate may stop the girls' run to the top. Yahoo! reports that whilst Little Mix have sold an impressive 68,800 copies of their winners' single 'Cannonball' so far this week, statistics coming out from online store Amazon have suggested that one track is selling four times more on pre-orders than 'Cannonball' is downloads and CD pre-orders combined.

The track? The Military Wives Choir with GARETH MALONE and their song 'Wherever You Are'; indeed, the bookies now have it at 4/6 favourite to top the charts - so it's not a foregone conclusion yet, girls!
