You may include the following code in your functions.php file I have just tested it, details here

add_action( 'pre_get_posts', 'bavotasan_custom_pre_get_posts' );
function bavotasan_custom_pre_get_posts( $query ) {
if ( ! $query->is_home() || ! $query->is_main_query() )

global $withcomments;
$withcomments = true;
$query->set( 'posts_per_page', '1' );
$query->set( 'ignore_sticky_posts', '1' );

add_action( 'template_redirect', 'bavotasan_custom_template_redirect' );
function bavotasan_custom_template_redirect() {
$latest_post_ID = get_posts( 'posts_per_page=1&fields=ids&ignore_sticky_posts=0' );
if ( is_single( $latest_post_ID ) ) {
wp_redirect( home_url() );
