Sir Elton John could be on course for his first ever Christmas number one, according to the latest odds.

The legendary singer is now the 4/1 favourite to be top of the charts on December 25th.

The 71-year-old has announced dates for his Farewell Tour, and with speculation increasing around his voicing this year’s M&S Christmas advert, he could be top of the tree this festive season.

Ed Sheeran and Lady Gaga are close behind in the betting at 5/1 apiece. They’re followed by 6/1 pair Ariana Grande and Dalton Harris.

Meanwhile, 8/1 says Queen are top for Christmas, following the success of the new film Bohemian Rhapsody.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Elton John looks set to be the voice of M&S’s advert and that makes it incredibly likely he’ll Step Into Christmas number one spot as a result.”
