The Kunts’ ‘Boris Johnson Is A Fucking C**t’ enters Top 10 in race for Christmas Number One

It's climbing up the charts

The Kunts’ song ‘Boris Johnson Is A Fucking Cunt’ has entered the Top 10 of the UK’s singles chart as the race for this year’s Christmas Number One continues.

Released earlier this year as part of the cult comedy band’s July album ‘Kunts Punk In Your Face’, the song has already received the backing of Black Mirror creator Charlie Brooker.

Brooker noted on Sunday (December 20) that ‘Boris Johnson Is A Fucking Cunt’ had risen to number two on iTunes’ UK songs chart, a likely response from the music-buying public to the UK government’s last-minute decision to scrap the proposed relaxation of coronavirus rules over the Christmas period and implement a new ‘Tier 4’ across London and the South East.

Now, the latest update from the Official Charts Company confirms the track is at Number Six in the race for the festive top spot and is the UK’s second most downloaded song of the week. In the midweek chart published on Monday (December 21), it was at Number 19.

LadBaby (YouTubers Mark and Roxanne Hoyle) are currently in position to take the Number One with ‘Don’t Stop Me Eatin”, which would mark their third consecutive Christmas Number One. Mariah Carey‘s ‘All I Want For Christmas’ is at Number Two in the latest update, while Wham!‘s ‘Last Christmas’ is at Number Three.

Jess Glynne‘s cover of Donny Hathaway’s ‘This Christmas’ is at Number Four while, further down the Top 20 are Justin Bieber‘s ‘Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree’ (nine) and Liam Gallagher‘s ‘All You’re Dreaming Of’ (15).

The Kunts are priced at 8/1 by a number of bookmakers to grab the Christmas number one spot on Friday (December 25).

The cut-off point for streams and purchases to count towards this year’s UK Christmas singles chart is at 11:59pm on Thursday (December 24), with the UK’s Christmas number one for 2020 set to be announced on BBC Radio 1 from 2pm on Christmas Day.

Another contender for the UK Christmas number one this year is Liam Gallagher, who released the festive ballad ‘All You’re Dreaming Of’ last week.
