Who is the favourite for Christmas Number One? LadBaby, Ed Sheeran, Ariana Grande and Mariah Carey battle for top spot

Ed Sheeran's odds have been cut across the board.

  • Mariah Carey has slipped all the way out to 66/1 from being a previous favourite.
  • Ed Sheeran is the biggest market mover in the last 24 hours coming down to 7/4 from 5/1.


With the big day fast approaching, the Christmas Number One market is growing increasingly popular with punters.  

But who is the favourite to follow in the footsteps of Slade, the Spice Girls and Shayne Ward?  

Oddschecker has taken a look at the betting ahead of the result this weekend.  

The clear favourite in the race for number one is internet sensation LadBaby, who are not stranger to the market.  

They’ve won the coveted award two years running with the help of a huge social following and are now priced at 1/2 to make it three.  

Ed Sheeran is the biggest market mover over the last 24 hours, cut from 5/1 into 7/4 best price, following reports he’ll release new single “Afterglow”. 

A cheeky pop at struggling Prime Minister entitled: ‘Boris Johnson Is A F**king C**t’ by ‘The Kunts’ is currently the fourth favourite at 12/1

Former market leader Mariah Carey has continued to drift, from previous 4/5 favourite all the way out to 66/1 now with Wiliam Hill.  

Oddschecker spokesperson Callum Wilson: “Alongside whether or not we’ll have a white Christmas, this is by far the most popular festive special offered by bookies every year. 

“It’s been solely dominated by Hemel Hempstead-based couple ‘LadBaby’ who look set for another year at the top spot.  

“They’ve accumulated around 38% of all money bet so far, making them by far the most popular in the market.
