One Direction top calendar chart

One Direction's calendar has topped the latest best-seller list

One Direction are revealed as the stars with which the nation wants to spend the next 12 months, after topping the best-selling calendar list.

The pop music heartthrobs - whose Midnight Memories album is at number one - headed the sales top 10 compiled by official licensed calendar firm Danilo for a second year running.

They were just ahead of cult computer game Minecraft which has taken children and young teens by storm and was number two in the bestseller list.

The 50th anniversary Doctor Who calendar took third place in the chart, compiled from sales through Amazon, HMV, Calendar Club and other retailers. Other TV favourites featured were US comedy Big Bang Theory (seventh place), BBC motoring show Top Gear (ninth) and award-winning sitcom Mrs Brown's Boys (10th).

The only other music star to figure in the top 10 was Sir Cliff Richard who took sixth position, as he did last year.

After topping this year's list, One Direction said: "Thanks to all our fans for making us number one again."

Danilo, which celebrates its 35th anniversary this year, claims that one in four UK homes has one of its official calendars on the wall.

Take this opportunity to reconnect with it. You'll be surprised to learn how much you enjoy your own company.More
