Ant & Dec Relinquish Top Spot in The Singles Chart

Uh oh – reality check for Ant & Dec; the jewels in the crown of ITV’s broadcasting schedule managed to beat The Voice on Saturday night, but the re-release of their single Let's Get Ready to Rhumble was knocked off the top spot after just a week. Ant & Dec performed the song as part of their show, Saturday Night Takeaway.

The PJ & Duncan song finally got to the number 1 spot after only charting at No 9 when it was originally released back in 1994. That didn’t last long though; the Duke Dumont track 'Need U (100%)', featuring A*M*E has usurped the Newcastle double act, making their long-awaited number 1 single a short-lived affair. But it’s not as if they dropped to second, no; they dropped six places, with Pink, Justin Timberlake and Bastille all climbing above the charity single. Still, at least they’re on top of their game o the television. SNT managed an average audience of 7.3 million, compared to 6.4 million for BBC’s flagship talent show, The Voice, which is doing everything it can to hold off competition from Britain’s Got Talent – another Ant & Dec-hosted show, which stars again next week.

Ant and DecAs always, it's Ant THEN dec. Left to right.

For the first year running, the show’s will clash. “ITV's move is disappointing,” says a BBC insider, according to The Huffington Post, “because it's not in the best interests of viewers. BGT has started at 8pm for the last three years which enabled viewers to watch both shows - it's a shame they can't this year."
