Jack's hoping he'll be 'Topping' the charts come Christmas Day, fending off competition from this year's X factor winner.

The Liverpool choirboy is releasing his new single, Tomorrow, on December 16, in time to compete for the coveted Christmas No. 1 spot. Jack hopes the track, which will raise funds for Save the Children, will make a difference to children this Christmas.

"I watch the X Factor every week so it’s really exciting and a bit scary that I will be going up against them," he said. "I really like the contestants on the X Factor but I would love to have a Christmas number 1 so it raises lots of money for Save the Children and the children I have met so far."

The single will also be featured on the Save the Children adverts soon to be a heard in millions of homes across the country in the lead up to Christmas. Bookmakers Williams Hill have placed 6/1 odds on the singer, making him a second favourite already.
