Who will be the 2018 Christmas number 1? Latest odds as Ariana Grande and LadBaby are tipped to top the charts

We have the latest odds on who's set to top the UK charts this Xmas 2018.

Who will be the Christmas number one for 2018?

An unlikely contender for Christmas No1 is Mark Hoyle aka LadBaby – a parenting YouTuber, who was named Celebrity Dad of the Year 2018. 

He's released a charity cover of Starship's We Built This City (on sausage rolls).

But he'll have to beat Ariana Grande who's still currently favourite to top the charts this Christmas.

US breakthrough act Ava Max is also a contender with her song Sweet But Psycho.

X Factor winner Dalton Harris released his cover of Frankie Goes To Hollywood's The Power Of Love but the show's winner hasn't had a Christmas number one since Ben Haenow in 2014.
