css-14iz86j-BoldText {Font size: bold;} First the Beatles did it Then the Spice Girls Now LadBaby has launched its offer to get three consecutive singles of the British Christmas number one

The YouTube comedian, real name Mark Hoyle, has ruled the festive charts for the past two years with charity cover versions of sausage rolls

It raises funds for the food banks charity, The Trussell Trust, and he said this was “our most important year yet”

Hoyle has rewritten the lyrics to include references to Lockdown as well as sausage roll puns, and Don’t Stop Me Eatin ‘is the favorite giving him his chart hat-trick when Christmas number one is announced on Christmas Day / p>

However, he has to suppress Mariah Carey’s Everything I wish for Christmas from you, which has now been number one for two weeks

Hoyle took the first Christmas spot for the first time with We Built This City on Wurstbrötchen in 2018, followed by I Love Wurstbrötchen last year

The Beatles dominated the first Christmas spots between 1963 and 1965, and the Spice Girls had three in a row from 1996 to 1998

LadBaby spoke to BBC News about why he changed his mind after saying he wouldn’t go for a third, if he could go for a fourth record – and if sausage rolls were an essential meal under coronavirus regulations should apply

We don’t have any songs with rock ‘n’ roll in the title because that was our goal – you can find a song with rock ‘n’ roll in the title and it’s a nice change [from Wurst Roll]]

We wanted to pick a song that people love and can sing to the best way is to watch karaoke songs, and Don’t Stop Believin ‘is always at the top of most karaoke lists.We had that Feeling like after the year everyone’s had, it’s a feeling everyone needs – don’t stop believing things are getting better It felt very appropriate so we had to weave some sausage roll magic into the lyrics

A lot of your new lyrics are about lockdown – have you been tempted to avoid all of that?

We just wanted to think about the year we all went through we wanted to have some fun with and things like, you just want to hug your nan again, that’s a feeling a lot of people have felt this year and saving key forces It’s just true for the year, and if we can highlight those moments in a fun way, then I think we’re in a good place

Definitely after last year we said we wouldn’t do it again We’d done it twice and were happy and didn’t want to overdo it We wanted to find another way to get the charity’s word out

But this year it felt right.It felt like it was our most important year yet as the food banks were heavily used.It felt like it wasn’t time not to, hopefully it will help make a difference

In the first year it was the equivalent of 70000 emergency grocery parcels collected Last year the money doubled, but that money not only went to groceries, it kept the food banks open This year we want this song to raise more money than ever before

The reason we go for number one is because we have the opportunity to mention and talk about the charity, which is why we always do our best to get number one on The Beatles and the Spice Girls people talk about the three of us too You know it’s an honor to be mentioned with such musical greats but our passion is to raise the name of this charity

Do you think if you had put the Spice Girls and the Beatles on an equal footing, would you be satisfied or would you like to break the record?

Who knows! We believe this is the last time The X Factor made a song every year and it got to a point where people didn’t like it and people started boycotting it

What we don’t want is to do something where people start boycotting what we do as a song because then it might also think about charity. As much as we love it, we need to know when it’s right Not to Do It While people are still having fun and it still makes a difference and makes people laugh, we’ll do our best

It depends what meal of the day we are talking about I think it’s a hearty breakfast For lunch I would probably have it with a couple of fries and peas and for tea when you get two sausage rolls with some sauce we’re in a good place

LadBaby’s song is one of many charity singles battling for number one Christmas this year. Here are some of the others:
