James Arthur is set to land the coveted Christmas No.1 spot according to the mid-week charts.

The X Factor winner's debut single, Impossible, has broken records since it was released a week ago, becoming the fastest selling track in British iTunes history.

Despite already being top of the charts, the song is thought to have sold an extra 76,000 copies.

According to the Official Charts Company, the bookies' favourite, The Justice Collective's cover of He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother, is behind by 3,000 copies.

The song has been released as a tribute to the victims of the Hillsborough disaster and it features Paul McCartney, Robbie Williams and Mel C.

Official Charts Company's managing director Martin Talbot said, "While James Arthur has an early lead over The Justice Collective after just two days of sales, it is exceptionally tight - especially with Christmas gift purchases likely to impact on both releases as the week progresses.

"It looks like being an extremely exciting race for this year's Official Christmas number one."
