Robbie Williams' Sport Relief single misses top 40 slot

Robbie Williams
Williams' latest album is at number 22 in the UK album charts.

Robbie Williams' Sport Relief single, Morning Sun, has failed to make the top 40 UK singles chart.

The EP, released on 5 March, charted at 60 on Sunday's countdown. The singer is expected to perform the track on the BBC's Sport Relief show on Friday.

Meanwhile, Boyzone went straight in at number one on the album chart with their latest offering, Brother.

A tribute to former bandmate Stephen Gately, who died last year, it is the band's first studio album in 12 years.

On the singles chart, Tinie Tempah stayed top of the chart with Pass Out.

Rihanna remained at number two with Rude Boy while Justin Bieber's song with Ludacris, Baby, was the highest climber, up 185 places to number three.

Lengthy video

Despite being ahead in the first official midweek chart, Gorillaz's third album, Plastic Beach, was beaten by Boyzone's Brother.

Last week's top album, Ellie Goulding's debut, Lights, dropped to number 16.

Other new entries in the top 10 include Amy MacDonald at number four with A Curious Thing and the cast recording of Andrew Lloyd Webber's new musical Love Never Dies at number 10.

It was a mixed week for Lady Gaga; although her album The Fame dropped three places to number five, her single with Beyonce, Telephone, climbed 19 places to 12; possibly due to the song's controversial nine-minute video, which premiered last week.

Elsewhere in the singles chart, Cheryl Cole moved up two places to number eight with Parachute while Florence and the Machine and Dizzee Rascal dropped two places to number seven with You got the Dirtee Love.

The cast of the television show Glee were down eight places to 28 with their cover of Journey's Don't Stop Believin', with the original version at number 31.
