The Christmas Number 1 song of 2017 has been revealed and it's not X Factor winners Rak-Su

The latest champions dropped 3 places this week with their song Dimelo, charting at Number 9 in the Christmas No. 1 chart.

Instead, the Official Christmas Number 1 2017 went to Ed Sheeran with his song Perfect which stayed at Number 1 for a third week.

Ed told “Thank you very much for making Perfect Christmas Number 1.

"This is an actual dream come true and I’m very proud and happy. Thank you so much and have a very Merry Christmas, happy holidays and a Happy New Year.”

Ed beat none other than himself from getting to Number 1, with his duet with Eminem in second place.

Wham’s Last Christmas completes the festive top three a year on from George Michael's death.

As for X Factor 2017 champions Rak-Su, Dimelo was their winner's song, a duet featuring rapper Wyclef Jean and producer Naughty Boy on the group's own original song.

The track peaked at Number 2 earlier this month behind Ed's Perfect, just missing out on the top spot.

Rak-Su missing out on Christmas Number One is not too surprising given that the final this year took place earlier than usual.

It's now been three years since the last X Factor Christmas Number 1 when Ben Haenow had the festive char topper in 2014.

Following their victory, Rak-Su have been signed by Simon Cowell's Syco record label and begun work on their debut album.

Runner up Grace Davies has also been offered a record deal after finishing behind the boys in the final earlier this month.
