LadBaby beat Mariah Carey for third consecutive Christmas number one

LadBaby have taken the Christmas number one spot for the third consecutive year – beating Mariah Carey, Liam Gallagher and Justin Bieber.

LadBaby – compromising of YouTubers Mark and Roxanne Hoyle – topped the charts with their sausage-roll themed Don’t Stop Me Eatin’, sung to the tune of Journey’s Don’t Stop Believin’.

First-week sales figures for the single have outperformed their previous two tracks which charted at number one.

All of the money raised is going to The Trussell Trust, a foodbank charity.

LadBaby said: “From the bottom of our hearts, we just want to say thank you again to everybody. We can’t believe that, a third year on, we’ve had so much support yet again.

“We’re trying to raise money for an amazing cause, so thank you. Merry Christmas to everyone and Don’t Stop Believin’ – that things are going to get better. 2021 is going to be better for everyone.”
