Chart-topping duo Richard And Adam are entering the battle for the Christmas number one and taking on the X Factor winner.

The pair, who competed in this year's Britain's Got Talent finals and were famously egged by one of their own backing singers, are to release their version of I Saw Three Ships Come Sailing In (On Christmas Day).

The brothers - Richard and Adam Johnson - are the latest to enter the running and join choirboy Jack Topping who announced he was to release a single, Tomorrow, in time for the festive market.

Richard And Adam, whose single is out on December 15, are placed at 8/1 by bookmaker William Hill behind 11-year-old Jack on 6/1, but favourite at evens is the yet-to-be-decided winner of this year's X Factor.

They are also to release a seasonal selection of tunes called The Christmas Album, the follow-up to The Impossible Dream which topped the album chart for four weeks.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Sagittarius:

Working in isolation doesn't suit you. You're a social creature who gets your best ideas when collaborating with others. Unfortunately, that's not possible right now. Resign yourself to this difficult situation. If you do a good job, you'll pave the way for bigger and better assignments. Part of the problem is you lack experience. The only way to get the training you need is to do some volunteer work. Making a temporary sacrifice will eventually pay off. Be patient.More
