Move over X Factor - an Oxfordshire pub has created a music video with its oldest customer in a bid to reach Christmas number one.

The Woodstock Arms in Woodstock gathered its staff and regulars to sing the festive classic Jingle Bells, dedicated to its 89-year-old regular Pete Adams, who was born in the pub itself.

If the video reaches 100,000 views the pub will donate £1,000 to charity Age UK.

Woodstock Arms licensee Owain Llwyd Jones said: “Pete could possibly be the world's oldest regular, seeing as he was born upstairs.

“When we heard he'd always wanted to record a charity Christmas single, it was the least we could do to make it come true. Now we want to get it to number one this Christmas.

“We want Pete to get the fame he deserves, but also give back to a charity close to his heart, so let's get to 100,000 views."

Pete, who is looking forward to his 90th birthday next year, said: “I’ve met every landlord the pub has ever had, and when I overheard Owain drunkenly mentioning they should record a Christmas song, I decided to tick one wish off my list and ask to be involved.

To see the pub in action, watch the video below. And keep your eye on Pete in his Christmas cap in front of the microphone.
