After spending nine total weeks at the top, Top Gun: Maverick is unseated by a festive favourite.

Will Ferrell classic Elf returns to Number 1 on the Official Film Chart, two years after its last stint at the top.

Thanks to the recent chilly weather, fans of the film have been revisiting it across disc and digital as they gear up for the festive season. It previously spent three weeks at Number 1 back in December 2020.
