Elton John now 3/1 for Christmas number one following John Lewis ad

| 15.11.2018

Elton John is now as short as 3/1 to bag this year’s Christmas number one, following a flurry of bets.

The 71-year-old is the voice and star of this year’s John Lewis Christmas advert, and a run of bets since its release has seen his odds trimmed.

That leaves Elton second in the betting behind 2/1 favourite Ariana Grande.

Elsewhere in the betting, Lady Gaga is a 5/1 shot, with a trio of Ed Sheeran, Little Mix and The Fire Tones all at 6s.

Meanwhile, it’s 8/1 apiece for X-Factor contestant Dalton Harris or legendary rock band Queen to take top spot this Christmas.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Punters can’t get enough of the latest John Lewis ad and while Ariana Grande’s favourite for Christmas number one, Elton John’s odds are shortening by the minute.”
