British crooner SIR Cliff Richard's chances of scoring a Christmas number one this year (06) look bleak, because he believes his fans are too old to download the song.
The WIRED FOR SOUND hitmaker is aiming to create history by scoring a number one for the sixth decade in a row with 21ST CENTURY CHRISTMAS.
But despite reaching number two last Sunday (17DEC06), he fears music technology has passed his older fans by in time to for him to score a Christmas number one in this week's British chart (24DEC06).
He says, "What I love is I'm still allowed to compete and if my fans can learn how to download you never know, there might still be a number one in store. Believe me, I'm up for it."
