One Way to the top spot for 1D

One Direction are set for the top spot with their charity single

One Direction are on course to nab the number one single this weekend with their Comic Relief single storming ahead of rivals.

The group have recorded a version of Blondie track One Way Or Another, which featured on hit album Parallel Lines, with the song segueing into Undertones single Teenage Kicks.

The Official Charts Company said the release was outselling its nearest rival by two to one, based on pre-orders and Monday sales.

If they can hold off competition from Bauuer's Harlem Shake and Macklemore And Ryan Lewis's Thrift Shop, it would give them their third chart-topping single.

Official Charts Company managing director Martin Talbot said: "If anyone can keep the likes of Harlem Shake from the top spot, One Direction can."

The number one single will be announced on Sunday evening.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

Read the fine print on a contract. If you're not happy with the proposed terms of a deal, renegotiate. Don't be afraid to drive a hard bargain. You may not realise it, but you have a great deal of power. People are willing to pay good money for someone with your intelligence and experience. If you undersell yourself, you will set a dangerous precedent. Someone will ask you to do something that goes against your conscience. Obey your principles, even if it means making an enemy.More
