Royle Family for Crimbo No 1?
Can Noel Gallagher's favourite TV dad bag a Christmas No 1?
Ricky Tomlinson, aka Jim Royle from TV's The Royle Family, has his eye on the yuletide top spot with a self-penned tune called 'Christmas, My A*se!'.
"My a*se" is of course his telly alter ego's favourite expression and now he's hoping the grumpy sentiment will bag him a no 1 spot amid all the schmaltzy stuff.
The actor co-wrote the ditty with two pals after getting the idea over his roast turkey last Christmas and even plays the banjo on it.
'Christmas, My A*se!' is in shops on December 4.
Bet Royle Family super fan Noel Gallagher puts it on his Christmas list...
