The Kunts aren’t exactly applauding LadBaby after their Christmas card success.

LadBaby – made up of Mark and Roxanne Hoyle – made history this year when their song Food Aid, featuring Martin Lewis, rose to the top to become their fifth Christmas number 1.

They are the only artist ever to achieve this feat, as it’s something not even The Beatles managed to do.

Meanwhile, The Kunts came seventh with their song called F**k The Tories, which is actually too explicit to play on the radio.

The Essex punk band is known for their swearing protest songs, which they’ve given us before back-to-back festive singles targeting former prime minister Boris Johnson.

This latest track marks the group’s third attempt at Christmas No. 1, after reaching number five in 2020 with Boris Johnson Is AF***ing C**t and in 2021 with Boris Johnson Is Still AF*** ing C**t .

The Kunts mocked LadBaby after their triumph, appearing to accuse the chart-topping duo of “swindling” the public.

They tweeted a mock-up of a musical poster, depicting Mark and Roxanne eating sausage rolls, referencing an earlier tune.

‘The Great Sausage Roll Swindle’, they added to the image, which showed Ed Sheeran and £50 notes.

‘No. 7. You can’t beat the system, but once you stop banging your head against it, they’ve won,” they wrote in the tweet.

“Thank you all, certain kinds of people. It is life-affirming to know that so many of you can also see through all the b******s. F**k them and F**k The Tories. X’

Despite not breaking into the top five this year, The Kunts received a lot of support from their social media followers.

Another campaign to be proud of! 3rd top 10 in 3 years despite being blacklisted and smeared by practically every big name in the media. Keep your heads up guys,” one fan replied.

“Be proud mate and know that one day we will beat the system,” another tweeted.

Meanwhile, the 2022 release of LadBaby has raised funds amid the poverty and hunger crisis, with a feature from money-saving expert Martin Lewis.

The song has moved over 65,000 chart positions in total and is the fastest selling single of 2022 to date.

Profits from the single are split equally between food bank charity The Trussell Trust and the Band Aid Trust, as the song is a reinterpretation of Band Aid’s Christmas Number 1 single Do They Know It’s Christmas?
