John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John's Grease hit 'You're the One That I Want' has been crowned the best-selling duet of all time.

The Official Chart Company has compiled the list of duets for a BBC Radio 2 countdown later today from DJ Tony Blackburn.

The duo also came second in the chart, with another Grease number: 'Summer Nights'. Puff Daddy and Faith Evans' tribute to Notorious B.I.G., 'I'll Be Missing You', came third.

Jason Donovan and Kylie Minogue's 'Especially for You' finished fourth, while Elton John's duet with Kiki Dee on 'Don't Go Breaking My Heart' completed the top five.

Chart analysts ruled that songs would only be counted if duos received equal billing on the track, while guest vocalists or groups would not be included.

1. John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John - 'You're The One That I Want'
