Since 2002, the winners have usually been TV talent show contestants. From 2005 to 2010, the winners of The X Factor headed the charts each year, until fed up pop fans started the Facebook campaign to pitch Rage Against The Machine for the number one spot instead. This was the first Christmas number one with a download-only single, and achieved the most download sales in a single week in UK chart history.
