A choir of nurses, doctors and other NHS staff have beaten Justin Bieber and X Factor winner Louisa Johnson to the UK’s Christmas number one spot.
The Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Choir’s song A Bridge Over You topped the chart ahead of Bieber’s Love Yourself.
The choir overtook Bieber after he had urged his 72 million Twitter followers to buy the charity single.
He tweeted: “Just heard the news. Amazing. That is what Christmas is all about. @Choir_NHS congrats! Very cool.”
Johnson, who had been the bookmakers’ favourite, could only manage 12th position.
