After one of the closest races for the Christmas No.1 in years, the NHS Choir have won the festive top spot.


The Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Choir's mash-up single 'A Bridge Over You' managed to fend off tough competition from Justin Bieber's 'Love Myself', which has settled for number two.

The track won the race with a total of 127,000 combined copies, compared to Bieber's 97,000.

"We are absolutely overwhelmed and couldn't be any happier," the choir told OfficialCharts.com.

"It's a brilliant celebration for the NHS across the country so well done and thank you everyone for downloading and streaming. A massive cheer for the NHS, thank you!"

Although Bieber missed out on the Christmas No.1 - which would've been the first of his career - we don't think he'll mind too much.

Earlier in the week when 'Love Yourself' was ahead in the race, the 22-year-old told his 71.9 million Twitter followers to buy the NHS Choir's single instead of his because it was for a good cause.

Also, the Canadian star rounds off the Christmas Day Top 3 with his October single 'Sorry'.

Adele is just behind at four with 'Hello', and Bieber continues his run of having a Top 5 hat-trick with 'What Do You Mean?' at number five.

"It's a brilliant celebration for the NHS across the country so well done and thank you everyone for downloading and streaming. A massive cheer for the NHS, thank you!"

Stormy finishes at number nine for the Christmas chart, while X Factor champion Louisa Johnson falls to 12 with 'Forever Young'.

As for the festive classics, Mariah Carey leads the way with 'All I Want For Christmas Is You' at 11, while The Pogues' 'Fairytale Of New York' is at 13.

Wham!'s 'Last Christmas' is at 18, Shakin' Stevens is at 26 with 'Merry Christmas Everyone', and Wizzard's 'I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday' is just behind at 27.
