Official Chart: PJ & Duncan earn their first no.1

PJ & Duncan are at number one on the UK singles chart with their 1994 hit 'Let's Get Ready to Rhumble'.

19 years on from their first hit, the boys have soared to the top of the charts with their signature song. The track has risen up the charts since the boys performed with the stars of The Big Reunion on ITV.

Ant tells OfficialCharts.com: "Wow. This week has been crazy! We never expected such an amazing reaction to us performing the song on the show. To be Number 1 in the Official Charts is just unbelievable!"

"To get a Number 1 single with this song 19 years later is very surreal, but we're genuinely chuffed!" adds Dec.

"Thank you to everyone that has bought the single, as you are helping Childline, a charity that we are very passionate about."

Pink and Nate Ruess sit at number two with 'Just Give Me a Reason'. The pair are just 5,000 copies behind Ant and Dec. All this fierce competition means that last week's number one, The Saturdays and Sean Paul, have been shunted down to three with 'What About Us'.

Outside of the top three, Justin Timberlake's 'Mirrors' drops to four, Bastille hold strong at five with 'Pompeii' and Bruno Mars falls two to six with 'When I Was Your Man'.

Charlie Brown is a new entry at seven with 'On My Way', while Bridgit Mendler is a non-mover at eight with 'Ready Or Not'.

Nelly's 'Porsche' rises six places to nine and Macklemore's 'Thrift Shop' drop three places to round out the top 10.
