Jarvis Cocker, the former Pulp singer up until the band went on permanent hiatus in 2013, has followed in Thom Yorke's footsteps by penning a letter to Father Christmas.

In the Christmas wishlist published by NME, Cocker asks Santa for "sexy glasses, cashmere underpants, a Jeremy Corbyn-style fishing hat, blind faith and a guided missile that only kills evil people and leaves nice people completely unscathed (ask British MOD for details)."

Cocker then amusingly signs off with, "P.S. Chimney has been cleaned – jackdaw nest removed. Mince pie, carrot & Bailey's in usual spot. PLEASE take care on new carpet!!"

The singer and broadcaster's whimsical wishlist was written for the Letters of Noel project, which was put together by Letters of Note spinoff Letters Live.

Letters Live will see a star-studded list of celebrity guests reading the words of various world figures at London's Freemason’s Hall in March 2016. Tickets start at £35, and last year's performers included Benedict Cumberbatch, Kylie Minogue, Russell Brand and many more.
