Nuns in running for Christmas No 1

A CLOSED order of nuns is to take on Simon Cowell's X Factor winner by joining the race for the Christmas No 1. The singing sisters signed a deal earlier this year after a worldwide hunt by UK-based record label Decca.

Adoro te by the nuns of Notre Dame de l'Annonciation will be released on 13 December, taking on the winner of the ITV1 show.
