The former went to Number One on Friday (December 8) while the latter is currently Number Two.

Meanwhile, a DJ for Northampton Town F.C. recently apologised for playing ‘Last Christmas’ at a recent match, potentially ruining the game ‘Whamaggedon’ for thousands.

In the cult game ‘Whamaggedon’, players try and avoid the Wham! classic until Christmas Eve, and are knocked out of the game when they hear it.
