The Pogues slip in Christmas no1 odds

The Pogues have seen their favourites tag with William Hill to top the UK Singles Chart this Christmas snatched from them by the Creator Universe.

The Anglo-Irish band were heavily fancied at 1/6 to secure their first ever Christmas Number One after lead singer Shane MacGowan passed away last month, but are now the second favourites at 5/4 in the betting.

The TikTok Creator Universe have meanwhile assumed the top spot in the market, narrowly odds-on at 8/11 to top the festive charts this year.

Spokesperson for William Hill, Lee Phelps:

“The Pogues were previously considered a shoo-in to claim their first ever Christmas Number One after Shane MacGowan’s passing last month, but have seen their place at the top of the betting snatched from them by the TikTok Creator Universe. The band were 1/6 to top the Christmas charts with us as early as last week but are now the second favourites at 5/4, with the Creator Universe our narrow 8/11 frontrunners.”
