Rapper Dizzee Rascal has rocketed to the top of the singles chart with Dirtee Disco, having previously hit number one with Dance Wiv Me, Bonkers and Holiday.
He knocked American rapper B.O.B's Nothin' On You, featuring Bruno Mars, down to number two.
Virgin Islander Iyaz's Solo took the second highest entry at number three.
British Eurovision entrant Josh Dubovie failed to chart in the top 75, having come bottom in Saturday's contest.
Dubovie is the third British entrant to come last at Eurovision, along with Jemini's Cry Baby in 2003 and Andy Abraham's Even If in 2008.
But he is the only one to miss out on a subsequent top 75 chart placing - his single was released on 24 May.
Jemini's song made it to number 15 in the singles charts while Abraham reached number 67.
After 13 weeks in the chart Jason Derulo went down two places to number four with Ridin' Solo, while Eminem's Not Afraid, the first single from his new album Recovery, was straight in at number five.
Danielle Hope, who won BBC One talent show Over the Rainbow, has debuted at number 29.
Her single, Over the Rainbow, is the title song of the West End musical she is to star in, produced by Lord Andrew Lloyd-Webber.

They knocked The Rolling Stones down to number five with their re-release of Exile on Main Street.
Michael Buble was up 17 places to number two with Crazy Love. And chart success for the Glee TV show cast continues with their album Glee - The Music - Volume 3 - Showstoppers, in at number three.
