‘Gogglebox’ star enters Christmas Number One race with charity single

All profits from the single will go to Great Ormond Street children's hospital.

Gogglebox star Sandi Bogle has entered the race for this year’s Christmas Number One.

Bogle – one half of the show’s popular south London duo Sandi and Sandra – has teamed up with up-and-coming singer-songwriter Jack Rose, 15, for a cover of ‘White Christmas’, the festive favourite originally made famous by Bing Crosby.

All profits from the single will go to Great Ormond Street children’s hospital. The finished version of their track has yet to be released, but Bogle and Rose recently performed ‘White Christmas’ as they switched on the Christmas lights at Westwood Cross in Margate.

Watch their performance six minutes into the video below.

Meanwhile, Bogle has also been promoting the single – which is available to pre-order on iTunes now – on her Twitter account.

The “wages” paid to the families who appear on Gogglebox were reportedly revealed last week.

Gogglebox is currently midway through its eighth series on Channel 4. Series eight, which began in September, is the first not to feature popular, alcohol-loving couple Steph and Dom Parker from Sandwich in Kent. Bogle and her partner in crime Sandra Martin have also been absent for much of the new series.

Meanwhile, Scarlett Moffatt of County Durham’s Moffatt family is currently competing on ITV’s I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!, for which she is rumoured to be earning a £70,000 fee.

Gogglebox‘s Louis Michael recently took part in NME‘s Soundtrack Of My Life feature and picked songs by Florence and the Machine, Kate Bush and Adele. Read the full feature here.
