David Beckham’s son Cruz has released his first single - and the bookies are already predicting it could become Christmas Number One.

The 11-year-old debuted the track - titled If Every Day Was Christmas - live on Capital FM earlier this morning.

Speaking to presenters Dave Berry, George Shelley and Lilah Parsons, Cruz gushed about the festive-themed song as he appeared via video link.

The youngster said: "It’s amazing. It’s two of my favourite things – singing and Christmas!”

Cruz - whose mum is designer Victoria Beckham – also performed a short a cappella version of the song at the request of the hosts.

The bookies are now forecasting that the single could sell very well after Cruz revealed proceeds will go towards Global Radio’s Make Some Noise initiative.

In fact, William Hill have given it odds of 25/1 to become Christmas Number One 2016.

Spokesman Joe Crilly said: “We have tentatively put Cruz in the market at 25/1 but there is every chance that with the Beckham publicity machine behind him, that price could well tumble in the coming days.”

If Cruz were to claim the top spot on December 25, he wouldn’t be the first member of his family to do so.

Mum Victoria famously achieved the annual accolade for three years running between 1997 and 1999 as part of the Spice Girls.

Cruz’s dad David is also no stranger to success – albeit on the pitch rather than the stage.

The football legend famously won numerous trophies during his storied tenure with Manchester United between 1992 and 2003.

However, David, 41, didn’t mention any of his own achievements when he made a brief appearance alongside Cruz this morning.

Instead Becks was full of praise for his youngest son.

The soccer star said: “I’m very proud. He’s having fun, he’s enjoying it.”

Over the past few weeks things have been heating up in the race for Christmas Number One.

As of now, the bookies are confident that a charity cover of the Rolling Stones’ anthem You Can't Always Get What You Want - released by numerous artists under the name Friends of Jo Cox – will take the top spot.

Meanwhile, Salford singer James ‘Shinny’ Davenport is also a contender with his charity single – optimistically named Christmas Number One – having odds of 16/1.
