LadBaby Scores Second Christmas Number One With Sausage Rolls Song

LadBaby is on a (sausage) roll because he's just been crowned as the UK's Official Christmas Number 1 for the second year in a run, setting a new chart record.

The YouTuber and blogger - real name Mark Hoyle - has taken the coveted festive top spot with 'I Love Sausage Rolls', a playful twist on Joan Jett's 'I Love Rock 'n' Roll'.

The money raised from the single goes to charity The Trussell Trust, who support a network of food banks across the UK and provide emergency food and support to people locked in poverty.

According to Official Charts Company data, 'I Love Sausage Rolls' smashes last year's total too, scoring a huge 93,000 chart sales this week (18,000 more than last year's winning track 'We Built This City').

A huge 85,000 of that total has come from digital purchases, meaning that LadBaby not only claims the festive chart crown, but also the fastest-selling download of the year... in fact the fastest-selling download since June 2017's Artists For Grenfell chart-topping charity single.

Hoyle and his family have set a new chart record today, becoming the first ever act to deliver two novelty Christmas Number 1 singles back to back.

Plus, he's now one of only three acts to claim consecutive Christmas Number 1s in the history of the Official Chart, and the first in 20 years - the only other acts to claim consecutive Christmas Number 1s are The Beatles (three between 1963 and 1965) and Spice Girls (three between 1996 and 1998). So we wonder what's in store next year?

Celebrating the news, LadBaby told OfficialCharts.com: "How have we done this again? It's the best feeling in the world - it's a Christmas miracle yet again!

"Thank you everybody for supporting us once again, and all for an amazing cause. It's going to the Trussell Trust - to the 14 million people living in poverty in the UK. Who doesn't love a sausage roll at Christmas?"

LadBaby beat Stormzy's 'Own It' ft. Ed Sheeran and Burna Boy to the Number 1 spot, holding at Number 2, while a strong challenge from Wham!'s 'Last Christmas' sees the 35-year-old festive classic finish at Number 5.
