Elton John cut from 20/1 to favourite for Christmas Number One

Could it be another number one for the global megastar?

The race for the converted Christmas number one is hotting up as we close in on December, with bookmakers currently siding with pop legend Elton John.

Yesterday, the London born artist was a massive 20/1 for the number one slot, however with Twitter rumours circulating linking Elton with a certain Christmas advert the odds have been slashed.

In September, national papers broke the news that Elton John could appear on the John Lewis advert this year, and these rumours reared again following a video snippet on social media. However, the major retailer since distanced themselves with video.

Punters can now back the 71-year-old for Christmas number one at 6/1. The same bookmaker has installed Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande as joint-favourites.

Oddschecker spokesman George Elek: “Expect Elton John’s odds to dramatically shorten if he does indeed feature on the John Lewis advert.  Last year, Elbow went into 6/1 on the day the retailer released the advert following a surge in bets."
