History suggests both records will jostle for position in the charts - greatest hits album 'Elvis the King' claimed the top spot in 2007, as did Volume One of the Beatles' BBC Sessions released in 1994.
Showbiz journalist Kevin Hughes said: "I think this Elvis Presley album probably will get to Number One simply because there's a big advertising spend, there's a big push from Sony Music for this album, there's an ITV special, fans have been voting for their favourite songs for the TV show and the estate have compiled some of the greatest songs ever recorded - these are some of the greatest songs of all time."
Elvis currently holds the record for the most Top 10 albums on the UK chart and for the most Number One Singles in the UK, with 21 hits. The Beatles are the best-selling band of all time and have had the most Number One albums in the UK, with 15.
