N-Dubz's Dappy scores a number one single

Dappy

N-Dubz's Dappy has reached the top of the UK singles chart with his first solo single No Regrets.

The rapper knocked boy band One Direction off the top spot; their song What Makes You Beautiful fell to number three this week.

Dappy, whose real name is Dino Contostavlos, released the song from his forthcoming debut album.

Earlier this year Dappy told BBC Radio 1 he would be "devastated" if No Regrets didn't reach number one.

"I've been waiting for this moment all my life," he said.

"I want it to be one of the best records that comes out this year."

Jason Derulo also entered the chart at number four with his single It Girl.
