Elf’s Christmas cheer continues as it scoops a third week at Number 1 on the Official Film Chart

While Home Alone 2: Lost In New York and The Muppets Christmas Carol both enter the Top 10 for the first time.

It’s three sweet weeks at Number 1 for Elf as the film continues to prove itself as the nation’s festive favourite ahead of Christmas celebrations next week.

With 75% of its tally made up of digital sales, Elf finishes comfortably ahead of its closest competition and last week’s runner-up, Last Christmas (2), which is this week’s biggest seller on DVD and Blu-ray. Fellow festive films also holding firm to their places are non-movers The Grinch (3) and Love Actually (4).
