Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars have prevented x factor winner Ben Haenow from scoring an all-U.K. Christmas number one after beating the singer to the top of the Irish pop charts.

Ronson and Mars' Uptown Funk has claimed the top spot in Ireland, narrowly beating Haenow's charity song Something I Need for the coveted Christmas chart spot.

The Irish Christmas top five is rounded out by Ed Sheeran's Thinking Out Loud, Band Aid 30's Do They Know It's Christmas? and High Hopes by the High Hopes Choir.
