In other chart news, Jarvis Cocker could be on course for this year’s Christmas Number 1 following the results of last week’s General Election.

Now, a campaign on social media – set up by St. Etienne co-founder Bob Stanley – is trying to get the song to number one in time for Christmas following last week’s election result. The Facebook group, ‘Fancy Getting “C**ts Are Still Running The World” to UK Xmas No.1?’ has quickly gathered pace with ‘Running The World’ now already close to the Top 40.

Last year, LadBaby claimed the Christmas Number 1 single with ‘We Built This City’ beating Ava Max and Ariana Grande to the top spot.

YouTube star and dad blogger Mark Hoyle together with his wife Roxanne and their two sons recorded their own version of Starship’s 1985 hit, ‘We Built This City’, as an ode to sausage rolls – rather than rock and roll. All proceeds from the song went to food bank charity The Trussell Trust.

Speaking to NME recently, Hoyle said: “It was crazy to be in the conversation last year, and the fact that we’re even being talked about [this year] and that it could even be possible is just madness. You look at who you’re up against: Stormzy, Ed Sheeran, Mariah Carey — it’s the 25th anniversary of ‘All I Want for Christmas Is You’ this year, too. It’s just mad.”
