LadBaby has done what only The Beatles and Spice Girls have done before, by achieving a consecutive Christmas number one.

The YouTube star - Mark Hoyle and his wife Roxanne - have landed straight at number one with the song 'I Love Sausage Rolls', a parody of the classic rock song made famous Joan Jett.

Last year, the family vloggers had the festive chart topper with a cover of 'We Built This City', also a homage to their favourite savoury snack.

Both singles have raised money for food bank charity The Trussell Trust.

"How have we done this again?" Hoyle said. "Thank you everybody for supporting us once again, and all for an amazing cause."

LadBaby interview: Can YouTube stars really score a second Christmas number one?

Stormzy - who had championed LadBaby on Twitter earlier this week - finishes in second place with his Ed Sheeran collaboration 'Own It'.

George Michael fans will have to wait another year if they want to get Wham!'s 'Last Christmas' to the top spot, as it finishes in fifth place for 2019.

However, Wham! may get more luck at finally scoring that number one single next week, as streams for classic Christmas tunes reach their peak on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
