Band Aid Rules British Christmas Charts

BAND AID 20's reworking of hit charity single DO THEY KNOW IT'S CHRISTMAS is the British Christmas number one - after spending four weeks ruling the airwaves.

Top stars including COLDPLAY, ROBBIE WILLIAMS, DIDO, BONO and THE DARKNESS contributed to the cover of the 1984 hit, to raise money for victims of the civil unrest in the Darfur region of Sudan.

On Sunday (26DEC04) the song topped the charts for a fourth week, while THE X FACTOR TV talent show winner STEVE BROOKSTEIN was the highest new entry with his cover of PHIL COLLINS' track AGAINST ALL ODDS.

RONAN KEATING and YUSUF ISLAM's FATHER AND SON dropped from two to three, followed close behind by KYLIE MINOGUE's camp anthem I BELIEVE IN YOU at four and LEMAR's IF THERE'S ANY JUSTICE at five.

In the album charts ROBBIE WILLIAMS hit the top spot with his GREATEST HITS collection.
