Girls Aloud remain at the top for a second week
All-female group Girls Aloud will go into the new year as the number one act in the UK singles chart.

They have held on to the top spot for a second week after landing the Christmas number one with Sound Of The Underground.

Their success comes little more than a month after they were formed on ITV1's Popstars: The Rivals.

But their male counterparts, One True Voice, have slipped a place to third in the final rundown of the year, announced on Sunday evening.

One True Voice's Sacred Trust has been outsold by the Cheeky Girls' Cheeky Song - another product of the Popstars show.

The rest of the top 10 remains unchanged, with Sir Elton John and Blue, Eminem and Robbie Williams all still riding high.

In the album charts, Robbie Williams is still at number one with his CD Escapology.

Blue stay at number two with One Love, while Pink's Missundaztood rises two places to three.

Girls Aloud's celebrations have been marred by the death of their tour manager, John McMahon, who was killed in a road accident on Christmas Day.

Mr McMahon, 43, died when the band's Chrysler Voyager - emblazoned with the group logo - which he was driving struck a telegraph pole and careered into a field a few miles from his Staffordshire home.

He was one of the team which helped propel the group to the top of the charts.

In a statement, the band's record label, Polydor, said: "On behalf of the girls' and Polydor, we are truly shocked and upset by the tragic loss of someone we all adored and loved. Our thoughts are with John's family."
