LEWISHAM and Greenwich NHS Choir have 10/1 odds of nabbing Christmas no.1 according to bookies.

The group, which was formed by Gareth Malone last year as part of a BBC documentary, is releasing single A Bridge over You next Monday (Dec 9).

This tear-jerker tune features an arrangement of Fix You by Coldplay and Bridge Over Troubled Water by Simon and Garfunkel.

Talented staff have supported Lewisham Hospital during its High Court battles and they are hoping the charity song will make a difference to Macmillan Cancer Support and local healthcare organisations.

The video includes moving scenes of the choir members going about their day job in the hospital including in the operating theatre and the neo-natal unit.
