Mr Tumble star set for top 20 album

Children's TV host Justin Fletcher - known to millions of youngsters and parents as CBeebies' Mr Tumble - is set to be a chart star.

The 41-year-old is on course to have a top 20 album at the weekend with his collection of kids' favourites.

Justin, who landed an MBE in 2008 for his services to children's broadcasting, released his Hands Up... The Album on Monday.

The TV star - who has appeared in children's hits such as Something Special and Tikkabilla, and provided voices for Shaun The Sheep and The Tweenies - is outselling albums by the likes of Jessie J and One Direction.

The latest midweek chart placings put him at number 18 ahead of this Sunday's countdown being announced by the Official Charts Company.

Bruce Springsteen is expected to top the album chart on Sunday with his new release Wrecking Ball, while the Military Wives are due to debut at number two with In My Dreams.
