Despite their singles being released a good two days before; bookies still have the X-Factor winner as their favourite to get the infamous Christmas number one spot.
Amongst other releases Mary J. Blige returns with the smooth Be With you, Coldplay release Talk [pictured] and Eminem’s massive When I’m Gone is also on shelves. Will those chart veterans be strong enough to deny the X-Factor winner his debut (Christmas) number one, we don’t know. Tomorrow the shops will be selling Shayne’s hurried to press single That’s My Goal, RWD will be first in line to pick up a copy – coasters are very limited in the office.
With Saturday’s victory marred by news of his mother’s arrest, his dads prison death threats Shayne told press what he wants for Christmas, “Whatever happens, whoever gets the Christmas number one, good luck to them… but I would love a Christmas number one!”
