Ant and Dec rhumbled by Duke Dumont

Duke Dumont's new song has taken the top spot in the singles chart

They waited 19 years to hit the top of the charts but PJ and Duncan, aka television's Ant and Dec, held onto the top spot for just one week.

The Saturday Night Takeaway duo's re-released 1994 hit Let's Get Ready To Rhumble dropped to sixth spot as club hit Need U (100%) gave Duke Dumont and A*M*E their first number one on Sunday, according to the Official Charts Company.

The song by Dumont, who has previously remixed the likes of Lily Allen and the Mystery Jets, had received praise from One Direction's Harry Styles, who called it a "bangin' tune" on Twitter last week.

DJ and producer Dumont told OfficialCharts.com: "I've been making music for about six years now - remixes and making club music - but this is my first song I've had in the charts. It means even more to me that everyone went out and bought it and made it number one!

Ant and Dec prompted a download dash for their Let's Get Ready To Rhumble 19 years after it peaked at number nine, after performing the track on their Saturday Night Takeaway show. In the album chart Night Visions, by midweek leaders Imagine Dragons, was held off the top spot by Justin Timberlake's The 20/20 Experience, a non-mover.

Timberlake and Imagine Dragons lead Sempiternal, a new entry from Bring Me The Horizon, The Next Day by David Bowie and The Truth About Love, by Pink.

Leo:

You feel optimistic and for good reason. An admirer has been trying to win your heart. All this attention is flattering. If you're single, keep playing hard to get. The more you resist, the more they'll persist. Are you already in a relationship? Start pursuing a cherished dream. Fulfilling your heart's desire will make you a better partner and friend. Dwelling on what might have been will just make you bitter. Take a risk. It's better to try and fail than be paralysed by fear.More
