Ant & Dec celebrate their number one single



The 1994 single sold 84,000 copies this week, which is 64% of its previous total. It originally reached a peak of number nine. Ant & Dec are donating their takings from the single to the Childline charity group.

Ant McPartlin told The Official Charts Company: "Wow. This week has been crazy! We never expected such an amazing reaction to us performing the song on the show. To be number one in the Official Charts is just unbelievable!"

Declan Donnelly added: "To get a number one single with this song 19 years later is very surreal, but we're genuinely chuffed! Thank you to everyone that has bought the single, as you are helping Childline, a charity that we are very passionate about."

Pink and Nate Ruess settle for number two with 'Just Give Me a Reason', which finished just 5,000 copies behind Ant & Dec.

The Saturdays and Sean Paul drop two places to three with 'What About Us?', while Justin Timberlake follows at four with 'Mirrors'. Bastille stick at five with 'Pompeii'.
