First Christmas No 1
LadyBaby took a bash at their first Christmas No 1 back in 2018, with We Built This City… On Sausage Rolls, a parody of the 1985 Starship hit.
Mark and Roxanne unexpectedly scooped the coveted number one after the charity single about sausage rolls beat songs by Ava Max and Ariana Grande to the top spot.
His release raked in 75,000 combined streams and sales this week to take the top spot, and despite a fiercely close race all week, finishes 18,500 ahead of his closest competition after a last-minute push.
Mark’s victory was made all the more remarkable as the father-of-two, who is donating all profits to The Trussell Trust, which runs food banks around the UK, had never sung before in his life.
‘I’m not someone that sings in the shower, which everyone can probably hear if they’ve listened to the song,’ he told Femail at the time.
Second Christmas No 1
The duo secured the top spot with another novelty charity single I Love Sausage Rolls in 2019.
His rise to the top of the charts once again has saw him ward off stiff competition from the likes of Stormzy, Lewis Capaldi and Dua Lipa.
The festive song, a take on Joan Jett’s 1981 hit I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll, once again raised money for food bank charity The Trussell Trust.
Mark revealed that he had reached out to Stormzy and Lewis Capaldi to collaborate on the track, but neither accepted his request.
However, they both shared messages of support to the vlogger, which he says were ‘highlights of my life’.

Fourth Christmas No 1

The song is a sausage roll-themed charity rework of Ed and Sir Elton’s own new festive single Merry Christmas, again, in aid of The Trussell Trust food banks.
The milestone meant that LadBaby surpassed music titans The Beatles and Spice Girls, who are the only other acts to score a consecutive hat-trick.
The track proved to be a huge success, achieving more than 136,000 chart sales in its first week, according to the Official Charts Company.
They fended off competition from festive classics including Wham!’s Last Christmas, which took the third spot, and Mariah Carey’s All I Want For Christmas Is You came in fourth.
