A Boris Johnson insult track has landed the number five spot on the Christmas chart, as Ladbaby scored his third number one in a row.
The track, titled Boris Johnson Is A F*****g C**t by The K***s, didn’t quite get the top spot, despite support from stars including Black Mirror creator Charlie Brooker and Kate Nash – but it still landed high up on the list.
The song spans just one minute and 20 seconds and the only lyrics are the expletive-filled title repeated over.
It was released in October this year but has since gained momentum, after the Prime Minister implemented strict coronavirus restrictions, particularly in London and the South East, in the week before Christmas.
Over the weekend, the song was mentioned on the Official Chart Show on BBC Radio 1, as it sat at number 19, but could not be played due to its expletive-filled title.
Presenters Vick Hope and Kate Thistleton told listeners: ‘Now at 19, we’ve got a track about Boris Johnson that has so many bad words in it, we can’t play it on daytime Radio 1.’

Meanwhile, Ladbaby has scored yet another Christmas number one with Don’t Stop Me Eatin’ – an adapted version of Journey’s Don’t Stop Believin’, which is, of course, centred around sausage rolls.
Ladbaby, AKA YouTube couple Mark and Roxanne Hoyle have now joined the Spice Girls and The Beatles as one of the only acts in history to have earned a third consecutive Christmas number one.
The proceeds from their hit have again been donated to the Trussell Trust, a network of food banks across the UK.
Mark and Roxanne said: ‘From the bottom of our hearts, we just want to say thank you again to everybody.
‘We can’t believe that, a third year on, we’ve had so much support yet again. We’re trying to raise money for an amazing cause, so thank you.
‘Merry Christmas to everyone and don’t stop believin’ – that things are going to get better. 2021 is going to be better for everyone.’
Elsewhere on the chart, Mariah Carey came in at number two with All I Want For Christmas Is You, Wham!’s Last Christmas took the number three spot, and number four went to Jess Glynne with This Christmas.
