Christmas Number One? Just for me?


Hold up! Before you read on, please read this...

This post was published more than 11 years ago

I keep old posts on the site because I often enjoy reading old content on other people's sites. Not everything that is old is bad. It can be interesting to see how views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured.

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might very well have changed in the 11 years since I wrote this post. I have written some very silly things over the years, many of which I find pretty embarrassing today.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider highly inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Okay. Consider yourself duly warned. Read on...

Peter Andre and JordanSome are supporting The Hoff to become Christmas Number One – but I’m tipping Peter Andre and Jordan. Yep, the duo have recorded ‘A Whole New World’, from Disney’s Aladdin. Click on the play button if you’ve got four-and-a-half minutes to waste.


Now, if you’ve stopped listening at the Peter bit, you’ve finished too early. Keep listening. He might be cringeworthy, but at 1:11, she starts. Earplugs at the ready.

At the moment, it’s only destined to appear on an album of covers. But I beg of the producers, please release it!

This just has to be Christmas Number One.

I cannot believe they would actually release this.They would be shouted off the karioke at the pub at 11pm on a Saturday night.

The version to be released has been been ‘digitally remastered’, as it was for their performance on Children in Need. Allegedly.

A spokesperson for Jordan has now claimed the version above is a fake (as noted on the original article) – though the genuine article, as on the above link, isn’t an awful lot better…
