Topping the Amazon Christmas wish-list

Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver, TV presenter Noel Edmonds or pop band Scissor Sisters?

Take your pick from online retailer Amazon.co.uk’s Christmas list which forecast on Monday what would be this year’s festive big sellers in Britain.

Heading the Top 10, which is based on searches, pre-sales and trends on the web site, was Oliver’s “Cook with Jamie: My Guide to Making You A Better Cook”.

Next came the “Deal or No Deal” board game based on the television show that has helped to revive Noel Edmonds’ career.

In third place was the chart-topping album “Ta Dah” by the flamboyant New Yorker band Scissor Sisters.

“Although we expect new technologies like the Microsoft Zune and Nintendo Wii to be changing the way we entertain ourselves this Christmas, it seems as though the humble TV hasn’t lost its influence among the British public quite yet” said Matt Henderson, senior manager-media at Amazon.co.uk.

Top 10 predictions also included the “Little Britain Live” DVD and the Doctor Who Electronic Tardis Playset.
