HMV comment on the race for the Christmas No.1.

James Arthur still ahead but TJC are closing in

"The Justice Collective has the momentum that comes with a new release, and clearly a lot of people are very passionate about its message, but James Arthur's really strong showing last week probably surprised a few people, and he also has the benefit of an extra day's sales. For the moment the advantage is with James to remain at the top for a second week, but if the campaign behind TJC keeps growing, as we think it will, 'He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother' still has a very good chance of making it. It's going to be close run thing, but based on what we're seeing instore and online we think TJC will do it."
