Cheryl Cole’s fight for the top spot pays off

Cheryl Cole on new series of X Factor

Cheryl Cole stormed to the top of the charts last night as her debut single as a solo artist went straight in at number one.

Cole (26) knocked X Factor winner Alexandra Burke from top spot with her single Fight For This Love.

But Burke still had reasons to smile as her long player Overcome claimed number one spot in the album chart.

X Factor judge Cole was predicted to gain top spot after she wowed the ITV talent show audience last week when performing the song for the first time.

After the performance Simon Cowell told her: “It's really going to pain me to have to say this but that was incredible.

“That was an incredible routine, great performance and unfortunately you're going to be number one next week.”

Burke held on to second spot in the singles chart with her song Bad Boys featuring US rap superstar Flo Rida.

Elsewhere, Whitney Houston forced her way into the top 10 with her single Million Dollar Bill claiming fifth spot.
