The tense race to see who would make it to Christmas Number one is officially over, with LadyBaby taking the win.

Congratulations to Mark and Roxanne, who are donating the profits to Food Aid.

That’s it for MailOnline’s live rundown of the Official Top 40 – see you next year!

While it was a joyous day for LadBaby, not everyone was best pleased over their once again win, with many taking to Twitter to share their outrage and confusuin

This has to be the last year of ladbaby’s rein

Is Xfactor not on anymore what’s going on

ladbaby got christmas number one for the fifth year in a row im tired

The Beatles will go down in history as one of the most iconic bands in history.

But LadBaby have managed to overtake the rockers as of this year, with this being the fifth  Christmas Number One for them in a row.

The Beatles managed to bag Christmas Number One songs in both 1963 and 1967, meaning they have three less.

Me trying to work out how to tell the Grandkids that Ladbaby has had more Xmas number ones than the Beatles…. 🤚🙉😵

LadBaby went live via their Facebook page as they tuned into the Official Top 40 chart show to find out whether they had done it again.

And Mark and wife Roxanne Hoy, the people behind the moniker, were left gobsmacked after finding out they had made it to No.1 this Christmas.

Roxanne let out a massive scream while covering her mouth, while Mark couldn’t contain his tears while getting emotional at the news.

‘Oh my god, this is not real,’ said Roxanne as her husband struggled to utter a word.

Congratulations to LadBaby!

LadBaby have made chart history by securing the Christmas Number One for a fifth consecutive year – surpassing a record set by The Beatles in the 1960s.

Does everyone have their predictions?? 

Twitter users following the action appear to want a change this year….

Many are calling for someone other than LadBaby to scoop the top spot!

Are we not getting a little tired of LadBaby at this point, or is it just me?? 🤔

So – ahead of the announcement let’s take a look at who LadBaby is?

LadBaby has vowed that he’ll put a stop to making Christmas tracks if everyone pulls together to support food banks.

Joining Wednesday’s episode of Good Morning Britain, LadBaby (Mark Hoyle) revealed their new song Food Aid could be their last.

They announced their fifth attempt for a Christmas No 1 on Sunday as the YouTube stars joined forces with financial expert Martin Lewis. 

He’s going up against Stormzy in the Christmas number one race and already has four under his belt. 

And Sir Cliff Richard, 81, discussed his competition during an interview on This Morning on Tuesday, saying: ‘I don’t know Stormzy.’ 

‘I’m going up against the most popular artist today, and I’m still able to compete. I’m really happy about it. I don’t know Stormzy. I should say “may the best man win’ but I won’t in case he does”.

Ed Sheeran’s hit Perfect has been revealed as the most streamed Christmas No 1 song ever – beating several Yuletide classics.

The 2017 tune came out on top despite having no festive connotations, a list compiled by the Official Charts Company shows, as modern pop proves powerful thanks to the streaming revolution.

The top five songs are as follows: Perfect by Ed Sheeran; Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen; Rockabye by Clean Bandit featuring Sean Paul and Anne-Marie; Merry Christmas Everyone by Shakin’ Stevens and Do They Know it’s Christmas? by Band Aid.

Anyone else just sitting around waiting to see if @Sidemen got Christmas number one?

What’s going to be Christmas number one then?

While many thought it would be a clash between Mistletoe and Wine V Grime this Christmas, a Shetland pony has launched a surprise bid to reach Number 1. 

Patrick The Pony could see off global superstars Cliff Richard and Stormzy to top the charts as his owner Kirk Petrakis gets ready to release a ‘bonkers’ hit featuring the horse this Saturday. 

Cockington’s famous ‘unofficial mayor’ miniature pony will take on the music heavyweights with the song Neigh Hooray – and even has his own music video.

Think of festive number ones and some iconic songs spring to mind: Merry Xmas Everybody All I Want For Christmas Is You…; Mistletoe And Wine. 

But those of us not of the YouTube generation will perhaps be less familiar with the most recent run of top slotters, especially when you learn that they’re all by the same ‘group’ and share the surreal and very un-Christmassy theme of… sausage rolls.

More unlikely yet, a fifth consecutive number one is on the horizon for this music-making operation who, if successful, will surpass The Beatles’ record for Christmas hits.
