British blogger couple LadBaby have teamed up with finance expert Martin Lewis to rework the Band Aid song “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” in a bid to claim their fifth consecutive Christmas number one.
Last year, LadBaby made history as the first ever act to claim four consecutive UK Christmas Number 1s with their track “Sausage Rolls For Everyone”, featuring Ed Sheeran and Elton John.
The social media stars Mark Hoyle and Roxanne Zee Hoyle are the first act to be allowed to rework the Band Aid song, getting permission from Bob Geldof, Midge Ure and the Band Aid Trust.
They will release the track titled Food Aid on December 16th, with half of the money raised going to food bank charity the Trussell Trust and the other half to the Band Aid Trust.
In a statement, LadBaby said: “We never intended to release a fifth Christmas single but as ambassadors of the Trussell Trust we were not prepared to sit back and do nothing in a year when people are struggling more than ever.”
“So, a few months ago we approached Bob Geldof and Midge Ure and the Band Aid Trust to ask permission to rework the most iconic Christmas track of all time, Do They Know it’s Christmas. And we were truly honoured when they said yes!”
The single is available to pre-order now, and is released on Friday (December 16).
The 2022 Official UK Christmas Number 1 will be announced on Friday, December 23.
