Military Wives Could Be Set For Christmas Number One!
Gareth Malone's Military Wives has only recently finished but bookmakers William Hill think that the choir could reach the Christmas number one spot, offering 10/1 that they do so.
Chris Evans has launched a campaign to get the song to number one for Christmas and with nearly 10 million listeners, there is a perfect platform for this song to challenge the dominance of 1/3 favourite, the X Factor winner.
"Gareth Malone has achieved cult status over the past 18 months or so while the singers in the choir are ladies whose loved ones have served their country with distinction in warzones around the world," said Hill's spokesman Joe Crilly.
"Even without the support of Chris Evans, this single has all the hallmarks of a number one."
