Ever since the official UK Singles Chart began in 1952, artists and bands have been competing to achieve the distinction of having a Christmas Number One.

For 50 years, Christmas was the time of year for novelty songs, charity records and songs with a Christmas theme. But since 2002, the UK Christmas top spot has been dominated by reality TV contests such as The X-Factor and Popstars: The Rivals – with the winning acts often going straight to Number One in the week before Christmas.

But during the rock ‘n’ roll years covered by SH-BOOM! – the 1950s, 60s, 70s and 80s – the Christmas Number One was always much less predictable.
