    That’s right! Ben’s cover of OneRepublic track ‘Something I Need’ has sold over 214,000 copies.

    Ben told the OfficialCharts.com website: “To have even been in the running for Christmas Number 1 against some of the names that were in the race, and then to have actually won is incredible,

    “It’s an incredible end to my year.

    “I’m gonna go and have a few good drinks with my mates- definitely more than a few good drinks to really celebrate! I’m absolutely shocked, I can’t believe it.”
