Ant and Dec ahead in race for Number 1

Ant and Dec‘Let’s Get Ready To Rhumble’ is on course to top the singles chart this week, 19 years after it was originally released.

PJ and Duncan, AKA Ant and Dec, are in line to knock The Saturdays off the top spot this weekend, according to the Official Charts Company.

The pair performed the song at the end of Saturday Night Takeaway on ITV sparking a rush on iTunes to buy the single. Speaking on BBC Radio 2 yesterday they confirmed that any money made from the song will go to charity.

Let’s Get Ready To Rhumble originally peaked at Number 9 in August, 1994 giving their pair their first ever Top 10 hit – and had sold just over 130,000 copies in its lifetime up until Saturday’s show. Up to midnight last night, Let’s Get Ready To Rhumble had sold an additional 35,000 copies, which is around 30% more than their rivals.
