Ben Haenow - 'Something I Need'

Ben Haenow, a former van driver sold over 200k copies of the song, which was originally recorded by US pop band OneRepublic. Ben knocked Mark Ronson's song with Bruno Mars, 'Uptown Funk' off of the top spot to claim the Christmas No. 1.

2014 Christmas Chart Contenders

The X Factor winner managed to make it to No. 1 but competition was tough. Mark Ronson was already riding high in the chart and there was plenty of festive releases to look out for. Check out the full list of contenders below...

Mark Ronson Feat. Bruno Mars - 'Uptown Funk'

One of the most likely contenders for the Christmas No. 1 this year is Mark Ronson who's teamed up with Bruno Mars on his new single 'Uptown Funk'. It's going to take a lot to shift this from the No. 1 spot.

Band Aid 30 - 'Do They Know It's Christmas?'

This year marks 30 years since the original Band Aid scored a Christmas No. 1, lead by Sir Bob Geldof. 'Do They Know It’s Christmas?' is back once again with an all new line-up including One Direction, Bono, Chris Martin, Emeli Sande, Sam Smith, Paloma Faith and Sinead O’Connor.

Iron Maiden - 'Number Of The Beast'

Following in the footsteps of Rage Against The Machine in 2009, another Facebook campaign is aiming to hijack the Christmas No. 1 this year. The group which is hoping to get Iron Maiden's 1982 single 'Number Of The Beast' to the top spot is already gaining plenty of momentum.

Tom Odell - 'Real Love'

Each year now a song from the John Lewis Christmas ad finds its way into the top ten. This year Tom Odell provided the soundtrack to the ad entitled 'Month The Penguin'. Tom's cover of John Lennon's 'Real Love' as already made it into to the top 10, could it make it to No. 1 for Christmas?

John Otway - 'OK, Father Christmas'

John Otway is attempting to get his third hit in 37 years, it might be a long shot but John does have a strong following of loyal fans that would love to see him bag the Christmas No. 1. It's an odd but catchy tune and while it's not likely to get to No. 1, I'm sure his fanbase would be more than happy with a top 40 hit for Christmas.

The Peace Collective - 'All Together Now'

The team behind the 2012 Christmas No. 1 from The Justice Collective are back, this year as The Peace Collective. Their version of The Farm's 'All Together Now' features vocals from the likes of Alexandra Burke, Gorgon City and Clean Bandit. The song marks the 100th anniversary of the Christmas Day truce during the First World War and aims to raise money for The British Red Cross and The Shorncliffe Trust.

Ariana Grande - 'Santa Tell Me'

Ariana Grande is back with a follow up to last year's Christmas EP, this year she's recorded a brand new festive track called 'Santa Tell Me'.

Idina Menzel & Michael Buble - 'Baby It's Cold Outside'

'Frozen' singer, Idina Menzel has teamed up with Michael Buble on a re-working of a Christmas classic.

Peter Andre - 'Christmas Time’s For Family'

Peter Andre might have been busy shifting frozen good for Iceland in their Christmas ads, but the Aussie singer has still found the time to record a festive song in time for the battle for the Christmas top spot.
