Fairytale of New York could claim #1 after Shane MacGowan’s death.

This week it’s all about Christmas in the singles charts, with Wham!, Mariah Carey and The Pogues ft. Kirsty MacColl lead a festive charge into the top 10 of the chart.

Last Christmas by Wham! takes the lead at #1, but it’s not over yet. The Queen of Christmas herself, Mariah Carey, is at #2 with All I Want For Christmas Is You, less than 1,500 chart units behind.

And that’s not all! Other festive staples that will continue to rise in the Top 20 week are Bobbly Helms’ Jingle Bell Rock (11), Andy Williams’ It’s The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year (12), Ariana Grande’s Santa Tell Me (14), Kelly Clarkson’s Underneath the Tree (15), Band Aid’s Do They Know It’s Christmas? (16), Dean Martin’s Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow! (17) and John & Yoko’s Plastic Ono Band on Happy Xmas (War Is Over) (18).
