POP giants Ed Sheeran and Sir Elton John are starring in LadBaby’s new festive charity music video — dressed up as flaky sausage rolls.
The duo are going head-to-head with the viral YouTube sensation with their own song in the race for the coveted Christmas No1.
But The Sun on Sunday can reveal they agreed to set chart rivalry aside and help LadBaby’s bid for his fourth consecutive Christmas top-seller with new track Sausage Rolls for Everyone.
The YouTuber, real name Mark Hoyle, 34, is hoping the song will bring him level with the Beatles, who also had four Christmas chart-toppers.
Ed, 30, and Elton’s wacky scenes were shot last week in West London.
An insider said: “The video has been kept top secret, but Ed and Elton are good sports and aren’t taking their rivalry with LadBaby too seriously.
“It’s all for charity, so they don’t mind if they win or lose. It’s all a bit of fun.”
Elton, 74, has admitted he is worried about the competition, saying: “We’ve got the sausage roll man to deal with.”
LadBaby, and wife Roxanne, 34, from Hemel Hempstead, Herts, first topped the charts in 2018 with We Built this City on Sausage Rolls, then again in 2019 with I Love Sausage Rolls.
Last year Ed supported LadBaby’s third hit, Don’t Stop Me Eating.
Mark revealed: “Ed Sheeran messaged me and said he loves what me and my wife are doing and he hopes we do it every year.”
