LadBaby explain why they won’t release Christmas single for first time in five years
| Last updated
There’ll be no sausage rolls for Christmas this year. At least not in the music charts anyway, you’re free to go wild in the party food section.
I’m talking about the husband and wife who make the ‘yes mate’ videos and probably pop up on your mum’s (and your mate’s, and everyone else’s) Facebook.
Back in 2018 they released ‘We Built This City… on Sausage Rolls’ and well, everyone went crazy.
The pair released the Christmas song to raise money for food banks and then continued to do so each year with their interesting remixes of absolute bangers.
In 2019 they released ‘I Love Sausage Rolls’ following by ‘Don’t Stop Me Eatin’ in 2020.
And turns out that was going to be the last.
The couple confirmed to Metro.co.uk that they won’t be bringing out another Sausage roll-related, or well, any song this Christmas.
Mark said: “After five amazing years we’ve decided to pass the baton over to the Great British public and we’re not going for Christmas number one this year.
“We never expected it to be five, I’ll be totally honest. It’s one of those things that just happened over the years and we thought it was amazing that the public got behind us in the way that they did.
"Five years ago when we started this, we knew the importance of food banks in this country and we wanted to raise funds and awareness for that so we did that one [song], that was lovely.”
So turns out we were never meant to have them at the top of the charts for so many Christmases, it was only meant to be one.
Well, Mark claimed: “Our idea was always to stop at five.”
But his wife Rox corrected: “We was only meant to do one!”
After making chart history for getting so many consecutive Christmas number ones with their songs for charity, they hope the ‘legacy’ continues.
“We want all the top 20 to be charity songs for good causes, having fun, because that’s what Christmas is, it’s time for family and time for giving,” Mark added.
