Boney M singer Liz Mitchell says she “hit the jackpot” with the group’s enduring Christmas hit

Boney M singer Liz Mitchell says she “hit the jackpot” with the group’s enduring Christmas hit Mary’s Boy Child, as she marked the song’s 40th anniversary.

The festive hit is one of the best-selling singles ever in the UK, having sold around two million copies.

But she says it was a last-minute decision to record and release the song in November 1978.
