Christmas no.1 proceeds head to Christian charity

The race to be Christmas 2018's number 1 has been won by LadBaby with the song about the joys of sausage rolls.

It's the work of singer and YouTuber Mark Hoyle who is known as "LadBaby" for his viral videos about life as a dad.

The song, entitled "We built this city" is a cover of a track by Starship.

The city is built not on "rock and roll" but on a pork stuffed pastry instead.

The music video includes his wife and son and some of the lyrics include "We built this city on sausage rolls"

All proceeds of the sale of the track are going to the Christian charity The Trussell Trust.

The Trussell Trust run a network of over 420 food banks across over 1,200 centres across the UK and provide a minimum of three days' emergency food and support to people experiencing crisis. 

The Trussell Trust says: "Not only was December the busiest month for food banks last year, but year on year December figures are rapidly increasing, as it prepares for its busiest Christmas yet"

Some Christmas classics also made the top 10 singles this Christmas, including Maria Carey's festive favourite "All I want for Christmas is You", which reached number four.
