McFly have entered the UK singles chart at number one with a double A-side release which pairs the songs Baby's Coming Back and Transylvania.

They knocked Beyonce and Shakira's duet Beautiful Liar down to second place.

Flying the Flag, the UK's Eurovision contender by Scooch, has reached the number five slot.

And the Arctic Monkeys' Favourite Worst Nightmare was the best-selling album for the third week, followed by the Manic Street Preachers.

What I've Done by Linkin Park climbed 11 places to six, while Amerie moved into the top 10 with her song Take Control, which went from 13 to 10.

There was also a new entry at 19 for download-only sales of Maroon 5's comeback single Makes Me Wonder, currently the number one song on the US Billboard Hot 100.
