Charity hit for S Club 7
S Club 7
The group beat Madonna to the top spot
S Club 7 have stormed to the top of the singles chart with the official song for the BBC's Children In Need appeal.

Never Had A Dream Come True beat off competition from another new entry to the week's chart, Madonna's Don't Tell Me.

The American star debuted at number four despite the publicity generated by her exclusive gig at London's Brixton Academy, her first in the UK for eight years.

Film theme song

The previous week's number one, the Charlie's Angels theme song Independent Women by Destiny's Child, slipped to number two.

LeAnn Rimes' Can't Fight The Moonlight also dropped one spot, to number three.

S Club 7's single was released on 27 November with all proceeds going to Children In Need.

It was the second charity commitment of the year for the group - Tina Barrett, Paul Cattermole, Jon Lee, Bradley McIntosh, Jo O'Meara, Hannah Spearritt and Rachel Stevens.

They earlier teamed up with veteran actress Dame Thora Hird to launch the Poppy Appeal.
