Ed Sheeran is in pole position to land the coveted Christmas number one spot, according to our traders.

Sheeran released a new version of his single ‘Perfect’ featuring Beyonce last week.

The combo of the two pop powerhouses means it’s just 4/7 to top the charts on December 25.

X Factor winners Rak-Su could be their biggest competition at 4/1.

Wham! were the early favourites but ‘Last Christmas’ has been pushed out to 5/1.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Ed Sheeran has released a new track at the perfect time of the year if he’s to claim the festive top spot, and plenty are fancying him to do exactly that.”
