Bedingfield goes top again

Bedingfield has knocked Christina Aguilera off the top
Daniel Bedingfield has scored his second number one with his latest single, If You're Not The One.

The 22-year-old singer knocked Christina Aguilera's Dirrty off the top spot it had occupied for two weeks.

Aguilera slipped to number three after pop trio Atomic Kitten entered at two with Last Goodbye.

Bedingfield's number one follows the success of his earlier underground club anthem, I Gotta Get Thru This, which went top a year ago.

He famously recorded the tune in his bedroom at home in Lewisham, south east London, using a 1,000 computer and microphone.

Aguilera is not the first big scalp Bedingfield has claimed on his way to the pole position.

Last December he ousted S Club 7, and later knocked Robbie Williams and Nicole Kidman off the top spot when the song went back to number one.

Meanwhile, Robbie Williams remains at the top of the album chart with his record Escapology.

Williams' fifth album went straight to number one last week, knocking Westlife's greatest hits compilation Unbreakable from the top spot.

Its success suggests that EMI's 80m investment in the singer may be paying dividends.

He recently announced a sell-out European tour including dates at Knebworth Park, Edinburgh and Dublin.

Boy band Blue's album One Love rose a place to number two in the chart. Lionel Richie's Encore became the highest new entry at number eight.

Jennifer Lopez's This Is Me Then entered at 14, and Gareth Gates slipped to 20, five places below his Pop Idol rival Will Young.
