LadBaby becomes official 70th Christmas number one after tense Kunts graphics battle



LadBaby won the race to be crowned Christmas number one 2021 with their track Sausage Rolls for Everyone, breaking previous Beatles records.

They are the first group to have won four consecutive Christmas Number Ones, beating the title previously held by The Beatles with three.

Scott Mills shared the news on BBC Radio 1’s official list on Christmas Eve.

The winner was chosen based on who had the most unique sales as well as total streaming numbers.

There were some pretty strong contenders for Christmas number one this year.

Among them were Ed Sheeran and Elton John with their song Merry Christmas which landed straight to number one on the official singles chart upon its release.

Other potential tops include George Ezra with Come On Home For Christmas, the Wigan-based band The Lathums with Krampus – and for the very first time, ABBA with Little Thing.

Last year, LadBaby took Christmas number one with the song “Don’t Stop Me Eatin”.

All the money raised from the song was donated to the Trussell Trust Food Bank.

Mark Ian Hoyle, commonly known by his Internet pseudonym LadBaby, is a British graphic designer, lifestyle blogger, number one bestselling children’s book author and YouTuber from Nottingham.

The couple had Christmas number one on the UK Singles Chart in 2018, 2019 and 2020 with the novelty songs We Built This City, I Love Sausage Rolls and Don’t Stop Me Eatin ‘respectively.

This makes them only the third act to win three consecutive Christmas issues, after The Beatles and The Spice Girls.

LadBaby fans were thrilled with the achievement, as one tweeted: “Come on Mark and Rox … 4th in a row and all for an amazing cause!”

Someone else followed: “Congratulations @LadBabyOfficial for breaking the Christmas NO1 record !!!!!! 4 NO1!”

“Another fan congratulated.

However, others were furious that after two years of the pandemic, the Kunts’ Christmas track “Boris Johnson is STILL a F *** ing C ***”.

Both acts saw verbal beating as LadBaby insisted in the midst of their feud, “It takes a certain type of person to download a song with that in the title.”

However, the punk group quickly fired back, “You have to be the kind of person who is willing to look beyond the lukewarm diarrhea that is pumped into people’s consciousness via mainstream television, radio and tabloid newspapers.

“The kind of person who is prepared [to] stand up for what they believe in and denounce the government for their lies, cover-ups and corruption.

“The kind of person who can see that it was the Conservatives’ policies of selfishness, misery and deprivation that caused this country to need food banks in the first place.”

Proceeds from their track, meanwhile, will be donated to charities, including Mind and Cardiac Risk in the Young, after band members are personally affected by both causes.
