    Bets Off Band Aid

    Uk bookmakers William Hill are refusing to take bets on the new Band Aid single being Christmas No.1 - because it's such a dead cert for the top spot... before it's even been recorded.


    Pop singer Jamelia has just signed up for Band Aid III's re-recording of Do They Know It's Christmas?, alongside Coldplay, The Darkness and Travis.


    A William Hill spokesman said: "Were we to include Band Aid in the betting, it would be a red-hot favourite and would decimate the market." Organiser Midge Ure has said he doesn't want rock veterans like U2 on the new version of the charity track - he's after Robbie Williams, Keane and Radiohead.


    Jamelia, 23, said: "I was absolutely thrilled to be asked to be part of it. It is important for my generation to realise we can try and change things. I was only three years old the first time around, so I'm really pleased I can help to bring awareness to a generation that missed it. I am happy to do what I can to help - I'd urge others to do the same."
