CHART TOPPERS

They waited 19 years to hit the top of the charts but PJ and Duncan, aka television's Ant and Dec, held on to the top spot for just one week.

'The Saturday Night Takeaway' duo's re-released 1994 hit 'Let's Get Ready To Rhumble' dropped to sixth spot as club hit 'Need U (100%)' gave Duke Dumont and A*M*E their first number one today, according to the Official Charts Company.

DJ and producer Dumont told OfficialCharts.com: "I've been making music for about six years now - remixes and making club music - but this is my first song I've had in the charts.

"It means even more to me that everyone went out and bought it and made it number one!"

In the album chart 'Night Visions', by midweek leaders Imagine Dragons, was held off the top spot by Justin Timberlake's 'The 20/20 Experience', a non-mover.

GIGS TO LOOK OUT FOR

Think of music festivals and you don't usually think Birmingham.

But a new event is hoping to change that. A poptastic line-up, including Jessie J, Ne-Yo, JLS, The Wanted, McFly, The Saturdays and James Arthur, was announced for this summer’s brand new Fusion Festival.

The festival, in support of The Prince’s Trust and in association with Capital FM, will also see Union J, Wiley, Amelia Lily, Wretch 32 and Conor Maynard take to the stage at Birmingham’s Cofton Park.

Tickets are available online at www.thefusionfestival.co.uk

OPEN YOUR EARS

Recently back from performing sold out gigs Stateside, singer/songwriter Scarlette Fever has debuted new single 'Where’s The Fun?'.

Set for release on 22 April it's a taster of the new material from the Hertfordshire-born singer that is due out later this year.

Fever (born Karen Louise Barrow), who has previously supported Girls Aloud on tour, described the catchy tune, which was co-written with her guitarist Chris Moorhead, as one of her "most sentimental songs".

She explained: "It's about a time in our lives when we were both in mundane jobs, going out a lot and having to go to work hungover. Chris was at Tesco’s headquarters at the time and when you hear the track you'll know exactly what he thought of that. I knew then and there that I had to help him finish it. Six years later and here we are.”

Watch the video, which illustrates what Fever means by 'mundane jobs', below:
