Soul singer Duffy, who was the runner-up in the BBC's Sound of 2008 search for new talent, has topped the UK singles chart for a second week.

The rising Welsh star entered the chart at number one last week with Mercy.

H Two O featuring Platnum's What's It Gonna Be rose five places to number two, pushing Canadian band Nickelback from second place to third.

Join With Us by The Feeling went in at number one in the album chart, while Amy Winehouse is at number three.

The troubled singer, who has recently performed at the Brit Awards and won five Grammys, was at number 14 last week but her recent successes have boosted her sales.
