Kim gives Christmas the bird

Kim Wilde has a rich history of releasing novelty festive songs and 2017 is no different. The singer has now teamed up with thrash metal band Lawnmower Deth to release anti-Christmas anthem F U Kristmas!

Wilde, who hit No. 3 with Mel Smith duet Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree in 1987, explains: “Ricky Wilde and I came up with a melody and additional lyrics – before you know it we had an utterly preposterous Christmas single.”

Bookies William Hill have offered odds of 33/1 on the track becoming this year’s UK Christmas No. 1.
