X Factor winner Sam Bailey has won the battle for this year's Christmas number one. The 36-year-old former prison officer sold twice as many copies of her single, Skyscraper, than US star Pharrell Williams in second.
Bailey, 36, who was crowned the winner of the singing contest last week, is splitting all proceeds between Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity and Together For Short Lives, a charity which helps children with life-threatening conditions.
Chancellor George Osborne has agreed to waive VAT on the release.
