Blogger dad’s song is U.K.’s X-mas no. 1

Perennial chart-topper Ariana Grande has lost the race to top the British singles chart at Christmas to a blogger who posts about fatherhood and sings about sausage rolls.

LadBaby, whose real name is Mark Hoyle, recorded his version of Starship’s 1985 hit We Built This City with his wife and two sons, changing the lyrics to pay tribute to sausage rolls.

“Thank you everybody in the U.K. who has got a sausage roll to the top,” the 31-year-old said. “...I’m honestly speechless.”

LadBaby, who posts videos about his experience of fatherhood and won a “Celebrity Dad of the Year” award in June, has just under three million followers on Facebook.
