LadBaby’s Mark Hoyle has revealed that Elton John favours a Greggs sausage roll. At least, he does now. Apparently he used to go to Sainsbury’s for them, the absolute maniac.

Hoyle reveals that John had his first Greggs sausage meat/pastry combo during the filming of the video for the LadBaby/John/Sheeran combo Christmas single, ‘Sausage Rolls For Everyone’.

“As we were singing, he ate it all”, Hoyle tells The Mirror, conjuring up quite an image. “At the end of the video he said: ‘That’s the best sausage roll I’ve ever had. Where’s that from?’ We said Greggs. And he said: ‘I’m not going to Sainsbury’s anymore. That’s where I’m getting them from'”.

I’m glad we finally cleared this up. It’s been bugging me for years. Finally we can add John to the list of musicians who love Greggs. The others on that list are Lady GagaMarilyn Manson and Blur’s Alex James. Worst. Supergroup. Ever.

This year’s LadBaby Christmas single is, of course, a cover of John and Ed Sheeran’s new Christmas song ‘Merry Christmas Everyone’, which is currently at number on the UK singles chart.

John and Sheeran are seemingly not keen to be the ones to break LadBaby’s run as Christmas chart champions – they having now topped the UK Christmas chart for three consecutive years – but would also quite like to have a Christmas number one themselves. Hence the collaboration.

The sausage roll themed version of the song is set for release tomorrow.
