The band arrive at a central London record store in a horse-drawn carriage...

The Darkness amazed fans with a breakfast signing session in LONDON today (December 19).

The band turned up at 9.30am at the HMV Oxford Street store to sign copies of their single ‘Christmas Time (Don’t Let The Bells End)’, which is leading the battle to be this year’s festive Number One.

The band announced they would arrive at the store on a horse-drawn carriage, and would be welcomed by The Haberdashers’ Aske’s Hatcham College Choir.

Hundreds of fans managed to get to the store in time to meet their heroes.

The 2004 Christmas Number One will be announced this Sunday (December 21).
