A YouTube sensation has become the unlikely contender for Christmas number one with his debut single dedicated to sausage rolls.
Dad blogger LadBaby is poised to steal the titles from the likes of Ariana Grande and Ava Max with his rendition of Starships 1985 song We Built This City.
While the original lyrics declare the city is built on “rock and roll”, LadBabys festive version credits the beloved sausage roll.
