The Muppets hope for festive No 1 with Queen classic


The Muppets are hoping to challenge the X Factor winner for the Christmas number one after scoring an internet hit with their version of Bohemian Rhapsody.

The furry characters have been seen more than nine million times on YouTube with their rendition of the Queen hit.

Record label EMI said today that it was to release the song, which if successful would be the third time 'Bo Rhap' had topped the charts over the festive period. Bookies have given the single odds of 25/1 to hit the top spot.

However, the X Factor winner who will be crowned this weekend is still the overwhelming favourite to take the prized slot for the fifth year running.
