Ed Sheeran and Elton John ‘dress up as SAUSAGE ROLLS in LadBaby’s new music video’ as they set aside Christmas chart rivalry for charity
They have their own Christmas single coming out this festive season.
The superstar duo are said to have filmed the scenes in London last week in a bid to help YouTuber Mark Ian Hoyle, 34, AKA LadBaby achieve his fourth consecutive Christmas No1 with new song Sausage Rolls for Everyone.
OMG! Ed Sheeran, 30, and Elton John, 74, have reportedly dressed up as sausage rolls in LadBaby’s new music video after deciding to set aside their Christmas chart rivalry for charity (pictured in 2013)
LadBaby always donates all proceeds from his Sausage Roll-themed Christmas singles to the Trussell Trust, a charity which aims to end hunger and poverty in the UK.
An insider told The Sun: ‘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.’
And if his latest single heads to the number one spot, it will bring LadBaby level with the Beatles, who also had four Christmas chart-toppers.
LadBaby, and wife Roxanne, 34, first topped the Christmas Single charts in 2018 with We Built this City on Sausage Rolls, then again in 2019 with I Love Sausage Rolls. Last year saw them get their third number one with Don’t Stop Me Eating.

In the music video for their own Christmas single, it’s been teased that Ed will dress an elf while Elton may appear as Santa.
Last month, Elton jokingly called Ed a ‘f*****g big mouth’ for letting the secret of their Christmas song out.
Speaking about his upcoming festive track with long-term friend Ed, he told NME: ‘Yeah, he let the cat out of the bag didn’t he?’

‘I was sworn to secrecy and then big mouth f*****g Sheeran goes to the Netherlands! It’s supposed to come out – we haven’t finished it yet, so there’s still work to be done.’
He then joked about battling it out for the number one Christmas spot with LadBaby, saying: ‘We’ve got the sausage roll man to deal with, haven’t we? We’ve got LadBaby to deal with!
‘Once we bump him off, we might have a clear path to a hit record. He seems to have the monopoly on Christmas records. And good for him!’
