As we take our first tentative steps into the ‘Teens, we can get a handle on at least some of the images that will accompany us throughout the coming year from Xmas sales of 2010 calendars. HMV and calendar-makers Danila have compiled their calendar chart for 2010 and it features January-through-December pics of newcomers as well as old favourites.
2008 X Factor runners-up, boy band JLS (“Jack The Lad Swing”), top the chart, beating a calendar for the new Twilight Saga film, New Moon. Everyone’s favourite girl-band-member-cum-WAG-turned-X-Factor-judge (from the North East) Cheryl Cole’s offering comes a very respectable third place, ahead of Michael Jackson in fourth, and way ahead of her alma mater, Girls Aloud, outside the top 20.
Football teams Man U and Liverpool lose places on last year while the Marmite of ageing pop, Cliff Richard, drops out of the top ten to 13th.
Perennial favourite “Hollyoaks Babes” is at number 11.
