'X Factor' winner Ladbrokes' favourite once more

Joe McElderry Christmas Number One favourite ahead of Rage Against The Machine again
Joe McElderry is once more the Ladbrokes bookies' favourite to become the Christmas Number One single in the UK, ahead of Rage Against The Machine.

New odds today (December 17) put The X Factor winner's 'The Climb' in the front running at 2/7, with Rage Against The Machine's 'Killing In The Name' at 9/4.

The news comes despite 'Killing In The Name' outselling 'The Climb' as of last night.

Earlier this morning frontman Zach De La Rocha and the band played the song - including the swear-filled chorus - live on UK radio and slammed The X Factor and Simon Cowell.

Simon Cowell has slammed the campaign, calling it "stupid", "cynical" and "very Scrooge".

For more on The X Factor and its effect on British music, get the new issue of NME, on UK newsstands nationwide, for an exclusive interview with Cowell.
