Sir Cliff Richard has announced that he will be releasing a cover version of My Neck, My Back by Khia to take on The X-Factor in the Christmas Singles Chart.

Speaking to reporters earlier today, he said that he is keen to reinvent his image and launch himself into the 21st Century with a tune that will ‘resonate with the youth of Britain.’

He added, ‘The lyrics are deep and meaningful, and I feel that they present the perfect counter to Mistletoe and Wine.’

‘Lick it now, lick it good’ is clearly referring to a candy cane.’

‘Pop this pussy’ is a fantastic tribute to this nation’s love of cats too.’

HMV confirmed that there will also be a vinyl release for the tune, with an acid house remix of The Millennium Prayer as a B-side.
