Who will be the Christmas Number 1 for 2018?

Lady Gaga and Ed Sheeran are currently the favourites to nab the top spot.

But odds were slashed on Elton John from 10/1 to 6/1 after he was rumoured to be starring in the John Lewis Xmas advert. 

Coral said: “The John Lewis Christmas advert is one of the highlight’s of the festive season and if Elton is indeed the star you can bet he’ll be soaring up the charts once it hits our screens.

“The odds of him landing Christmas Number One have been slashed and could well sink even lower once the advert comes out.”
