Dance Wiv Me is Dizzee Rascal's first top 10 single

Rapper Dizzee Rascal has captured his first UK number single, which has gone straight in at the top of the chart.

Dance Wiv Me won its battle with dance act Basshunter's song All I Ever Wanted, which came in at number three behind Ne-Yo, last week's chart topper.

Dizzee's previous high in the singles chart was 11 with Stand Up Tall.

Coldplay retained their number one position in the album chart for a fourth week with Viva La Vida or Death And All His Friends.

The only new entry in the album chart top 10 was Poor Man's Heaven from Devon-based pop folk star Seth Lakeman.

In the wake of their performances at the Glastonbury festival last weekend, both Amy Winehouse and Neil Diamond saw their current albums climb back up the chart and into the top 10.

Reggae star Eddy Grant's best of album made an appearance at number 14 after he gave his first live performance in the UK for more than a decade at Glastonbury.

In the singles chart, the music event's headliner Jay-Z saw his 2004 song 99 Problems make a return to the rundown.

Twenty-year-old DJ Ironik climbed five places to number six with his song Stay With Me.
