Ten Christmas comedy songs

...as ranked by radio station listeners

A song that features paedophiles, rapist and sex pests has been voted the top Christmas comedy tune.

Hannah Warman’s #MeToo anthem, Merry Christmas, Don’t Be A D reaches out to people of all faiths – as long as they are not sleazeballs.

Louis CK, Bill Cosby, Harvey Weinstein, Rolf Harris and Kevin Spacey are among the disgraced public figures mentioned in the comedian’s lyrics.

It beat Christmas tunes from Nick Helm, Rachel Parris and Phil Nichol’s former band Corky & the Juice Pigs to the top spot by listeners to digital station Union Jack Radio.

Martin Walker, who tonight presented a rundown of the poll – decided by online votes – said: ‘Merry Christmas, Don’t Be A D is truly a comedy song for our times. Hannah has produced a genuinely funny track that makes a very strong point about the unacceptable behaviour of too many powerful men.’

Other songs by the likes of Loretta Maine, Mitch Benn and even Morecambe and Wise and The Goons, failed to make the top ten.
