Osbournes duet is new number one

Ozzy Osbourne is still in hospital in Berkshire
Injured rock star Ozzy Osbourne has stormed to the top of the UK singles chart with his daughter Kelly.

The ex-Black Sabbath singer - who is recovering from a quad bike crash - tops the chart with Changes, a duet with his fellow star of The Osbournes.

Will Young's Leave Right Now falls to Two after a fortnight at Number One, while Sir Cliff Richard's Santa's List debuts at Five.

In the album chart Dido's Life For Rent replaces Young's Friday's Child at the top.

Ozzy continues to recover at a Berkshire hospital from broken ribs and fractured vertebrae suffered when the quad bike landed on him after he fell.

On Saturday night he was said to be making slow but steady progress from his injuries after the accident at his Buckinghamshire mansion on Monday.

Earlier on Sunday bookmakers slashed the odds of Changes being Christmas number one from 66-1 to 14-1.

Happy Christmas (War Is Over) by The Idols, this year's Pop Idol finalists, is still the hot favourite for the top spot at 1/3.

Christmas Time (Don't Let The Bells End) by The Darkness is at 5/1 while Gary Jules' Mad World is 7/1.
