Mariah Carey’s All I Want For Christmas Is You could finally claim Number 1 on the Official UK Singles Chart this week, according to the latest data from the Official Charts Company.
On today’s Official Chart Update (published 5.45pm, Nov. 3), Carey’s festive classic climbs to Number 2 and is just 900 chart sales behind the midweek Number 1, Ariana Grande’s Positions.
