Gym Class Heroes were number three with Cupid's Chokehold, while Timbaland, Nelly Furtado and Justin Timberlake's Give It To Me collaboration slipped two places to number four. Avril Lavigne's Girlfriend was number five.

In the album chart, Arctic Monkeys' Favourite Worst Nightmare continued to reign supreme for a second week at the top.

The highest new entry was from Canadian big band crooner Michael Buble. His Call Me Irresponsible entered the charts at number two while the second highest newcomer  in an entirely different vein  was Ne*Yo's Because Of You, in at number six.

Amy Winehouse's Back To Black was number three, Mika's Life In Cartoon Motion rose to number six and Mark Ronson's Version slipped from last week's two to this week's five.
