X Factor finalists score midweek No.1 with charity single

This year's X Factor charity single has debuted at No.1 in the midweek chart update, knocking Rihanna and Calvin Harris' 'We Found Love' down to No.3. 

The finalists recorded their own version of Rose Royce's 'Wishing On A Star' and it has entered the singles chart this afternoon, November 30, at the top.

Proceeds from the sales will be donated to the talent show's chosen charity, which is Together For Short Lives, and according to the Official Charts Company it is on course to be No.1 when the positions are confirmed this weekend. 

Emeli Sandé's 'Daddy' is the second highest new entry at No.18, Jason Derulo's 'Fight For You' has made an appearance at No.21 and Example's 'Midnight Run' has fallen just inside the UK Top 40 at No.40. 

Jessie J boasts this week's highest climbing single as her latest offering 'Who You Are' has shot up an impressive 30 places to No.7 following her performance of it on last week's X Factor and Rebecca Ferguson's 'Nothing's Real But Love' has fallen 16 places to No.26.
