A spokesperson for Paddy Power said the bookmaker expected the song to fare well in the Christmas singles chart, which is announced on December 20.

"We've taken more bets on The Muppets to be Christmas Number One than anyone else so far," they explained.

This year's winner of The X Factor – announced on Sunday (December 13) – will also release a single in time to top the Christmas chart.

As previously reported, Rage Against The Machine fans are also pledging to buy the band's 'Killing In The Name' next week in a bid to beat The X Factor to the Number One spot.
