The Military Wives Choir are currently odds on favourites to clinch this year’s official Christmas Number One ahead of Nirvana and The X Factor winners Little Mix.
The collective, who recently featured on BBC 2 show The Choir which sees a group of unrefined singers having their voices polished up, have had their odds slashed to 1/2 for charity single ‘Wherever You Are’, according to Ladbrokes.
Just behind are Little Mix with their Damien Rice cover ‘Cannonball’ with odds of 15/8 while Nirvana remain third favourite for Christmas Number One, with ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit”s odds currently running at 7/1.
A Facebook campaign was launched earlier this year to help the track to the Christmas Number One spot ahead of the winner of this year’s X Factor. The band’s label are also getting behind the campaign by re-releasing the track as a limited edition 7” inch single.
Some people asking about ‘Cannonball’. Once a song is released, anyone can record/release a version without approval, upon certain condition.
