The Military Wives Choir is waiting to hear if it has clinched the Christmas Number One.

The single "Wherever You Are' is on course to beat X Factor winners Little Mix to the top spot.

It is set to be one of the biggest sellers of the year.

Clare's husband petty officer medical assistant in the Royal Navy:

“ A lot of people are saying that it’s spoken for them. They really understand where we’re coming from, and not just the forces. I think there’s a lot of people whose husbands are working away. Anyone whose had enforced periods of separation”

Beth's husband's a warrant officer in the Royal Marines...

“My local church where we attend,St Augustine’s, the choir up there are really lovely and supportive. But I think when you’re singing a song with such powerful words it does really touch you and the emotion comes out. I think it’s been very cathartic for us this year as well”
