Rock band Oasis have topped the singles chart with their new release The Importance Of Being Idle.

It is the second number one from their latest album Don't Believe The Truth, and has been seen by music critic as a return to previous form.

The band, headed by Noel and Liam Gallagher, beat Caribbean star Rihanna's club hit Pon De Replay to the top spot.

Boy band McFly's single I'll Be Ok fell from number to one to eighth place.

Former number one single You're Beautiful, by James Blunt, has finally started falling down the singles chart - this week from number two to number five.

He had topped the singles and album chart for five weeks.

Although his single is fading, his album, Back to Bedlam, is at number one for its seventh week.

Goldfrapp entered the album chart at number two with Supernature, while Craig David's comeback album The Story Goes reached number five.

Other new entries in the top 10 singles include former Blue star Simon Webbe, whose Lay Your Hands reached number four.

The new Black Eyed Peas single Don't Lie got to number six, and the latest Girls Aloud offering Long Hot Summer made it to number seven.
