Charlie Simpson's returned alive (yay!) from making a Guinness World Record in Russia, where he played the COLDEST GIG EVER in temperatures of -40 degrees, making him worrie dhe would lose his fingers to friostbite.

Jeez.

Thankfully, he returned safe and osund with all his fingers intact (*girlfriend breathes sigh of relief*), and has since found the time to record a cover of Santa Claus Is Coming To Town and set it to a lovely, chilly looking montage of snow stuff.

He's releasing the song as a free download for his fans here.

In other news, Charlie's confirmed an American tour for next year, has popped down to Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park, and has recently been enjoying Jamie Oliver's 15 Minute Meals on the telly.
