Elbow are having a bash at getting the Christmas Number 1

Yeah, they're on the John Lewis advert.
Elbow could well get this year’s Christmas Number 1 single.

The band are currently leading the betting odds due to their soundtracking the John Lewis Christmas advert with a cover of Beatles track ‘Golden Slumbers’.

“Elbow are not associated with Christmas and as such were massive outsiders,” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams. “We think the song is very good and a genuine contender for the festive number one.”

Other acts that currently have good odds, include Wham (5/6), Ed Sheeran (3/1) and Stormzy (12/1).
