“It has gone crazy in the shops today with Ed Sheeran fans lumping on him topping the festive charts,” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.

“We can only hope that the release will be early for the Xmas charts.”

Other favourites for this year’s number one include the X Factor Winner’s single, Mariah Carey’s All I Want for Christmas is You and Wham’s Last Christmas.
