Thatcherites have hit back at the social media movement to get "Ding Dong The Witch Is Dead" to number one in the UK charts following the death of the former prime minister, with the little-known hit "I'm In Love With Margaret Thatcher".

Could a love song dedicated to Margaret Thatcher chart?

Perhaps not quite as catchy as the Wizard Of Oz ditty, the 1980 single by the Not Sensibles was featured in the film The Iron Lady - and contains tongue-in-cheek lyrics about the "sexiness" of the former Prime Minister.

Lead singer Mike Hargreaves has previously said he is in "great reverence of the woman.”

Other alternatives that have been suggested are the Commodores 'Three Times A Lady' and "anything by Iron Maiden".

More than 2,000 people have joined the Facebook campaign to send the song to number one. Other alternatives that have been suggested are the Commodores 'Three Times A Lady' and "anything by Iron Maiden.

The BBC has said it will not play 'Ding, Dong the Witch is Dead' in full during this weekend's chart show, replacing it instead with a short clip of the song.
