And Kylie Minogue's hit Can't Get You Out Of My Head came in third.

Saturday's live event was staged at the London Television Centre, hosted by presenters Ant and Dec.

A spokeswoman for the event organisers said: "It has been a great night and all the audience and bands have really enjoyed themselves."

Robbie Williams, Geri Halliwell, Bob the Builder and Gorillaz were among the acts not to make it through to the final shortlist in a special preview show which halved the best selling list down to 10.
