Coral suspend betting on Christmas number one single

| 23.12.2015

Leading bookmaker Coral has suspended betting on who will get the UK Christmas number one single this year following Justin Bieber’s support behind the campaign to get the NHS Choir to the top spot. Before the firm pulled the plug on the market, the NHS Choir were as short as 1-25 as Coral saw one-way traffic for the charity song all morning and into the afternoon.

“It’s hard to see the NHS Choir not getting the top spot on Christmas Day now that Justin Bieber, their only rival, is behind their charity song. Before we pulled the plug we saw a huge gamble on the NHS Choir so it is likely to be a popular result with punters,” said Coral’s John Hill.
