Celebrity Big Brother Contestants Triumph In Uk Singles Chart
Despite losing out to an unknown in recent UK reality show CELEBRITY BIG BROTHER, DEAD OR ALIVE star PETE BURNS and ORDINARY BOYS frontman PRESTON have both found chart success in the wake of their TV appearances.
The contestants enter the UK singles chart at number five and number three respectively, with a re-release of the 1980s Dead or Alive hit YOU SPIN ME ROUND and indie offering BOYS WILL BE BOYS.
Late rapper NOTORIOUS BIG's posthumous single NASTY GIRL, which features SEAN 'DIDDY' COMBS and NELLY, spends a second week in top spot, while CHRIS BROWN is a new entry at number two with RUN IT!. Former DESTINY'S CHILD star BEYONCE KNOWLES' SLIM THUG featuring track CHECK ON IT drops one position at fourth.
Meanwhile, rock newcomers ARCTIC MONKEYS see their former number one single WHEN THE SUN GOES DOWN fall to eighth position.
However, their debut album WHATEVER PEOPLE SAY I AM, THAT'S WHAT I'M NOT, which last week (29JAN06) smashed the record for Britain's fastest-selling debut album ever, spends a second week at the top of the album chart.
