Christie Number One For Seventh Week

Subscribe to Elvis Presley alerts

Elvis Presley, Snoop Dogg, Justin Timberlake and Will Smith have failed to stop veteran crooner Tony Christie from maintaining his reign at the top of the UK singles chart for an amazing seventh consecutive week.

The 61-year-old's classic song (IS THIS THE WAY TO) AMARILLO only reached number 18 when it was first released in 1971, but a new generation of fans have rushed out to buy it, after it was chosen as the theme tune for British charity COMIC RELIEF's 2005 TV campaign.

The last single to equal Christie's current chart success was Cher's dance anthem BELIEVE, which remained at number one from October to December in 1998.

Snoop Dogg's collaboration with Timberlake and Charlie Wilson, Signs, is the highest new entry at number two, followed by JXL's remix of Presley's A LITTLE LESS CONVERSATION, which returns to the top ten at number three.

Dance duo BODYROCKER'S single I LIKE THE WAY dropped one place to number four, replacing Smith's SWITCH which fell to number five.
