Cliff Richard's 'Mistletoe And Wine' has been banned from Costa Coffee shops over the Christmas period.

The coffee chain has blocked the track being played at all of its 1,600 stores after it was named the most hated Christmas song of all time in a customer poll.

Paul McCartney's 'Wonderful Christmas', Shakin' Stevens' 'Blue Christmas' and The Waitresses' 'Christmas Wrapping' also featured on the top ten most loathed festive songs based on Costa's survey of 3,000 people in the UK.

Kevin Hydes, UK Retail Marketing Director at Costa told NME: "We cannot deny our love for Sir Cliff, but sadly the people have spoken and his festive jingle 'Mistletoe And Wine' was voted the worst Christmas song of all time so we had to remove it from our playlists. We’re sure he'll take this in the good-nature it was intended."

Top 10 most hated Christmas songs from Costa Coffee's survey:

1. 'Mistletoe and Wine', Cliff Richard (1988) ?
2. 'Blue Christmas', Shakin' Stevens (1985) ?
3. 'Christmas Wrapping', The Waitresses (1981) ?
4. 'Little Saint Nick', The Beach Boys (1963) ?
5. 'All I Want For Christmas Is You', Mariah Carey (1994) ?
6. 'When A Child Is Born', Jonny Mathis (1972) ?
7. 'Christmas Time (Don’t Let the Bells End)', The Darkness (2003) ?
8. 'Do They Know It’s Christmas?' Band Aid 20 (2004) ?
9. 'Merry Christmas Baby', Mae West (1960) ?
10. 'Wonderful Christmas', Paul McCartney (1979)
