Sir Cliff Richard has won the latest round in the battle of the Christmas gift charts - with his mug outselling One Direction.

The boyband had toppled the pop veteran in the celebrity calendar sales - knocking him off the number one spot for the first time in 13 years.

But now The Sun has revealed a Cliff cup launched just two weeks ago has sold 2,000 units, while the One Direction equivalent has shifted just 250.

So Sir Cliff, 73, is outselling 1D by eight to one on the mug front.

The Dalek's are at number three, Pac Man is number four in the mug charts and Darth Vader is the fifth most popular celebrity mug.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Aquarius:

This is a great time to go shopping. You'll find some clothes, furniture or artwork that seems tailor made to your taste. Don't worry about spending more money than usual. The things you buy will give you years of pleasure. If you're looking for work, volunteer at a charitable organisation that is close to your heart. This will lead to a paying position that is emotionally fulfilling. You're tired of dead end jobs that leave you cold. It's time to move in a more rewarding direction.More
