PJ & Duncan's 'Let's Get Ready To Rhumble' is the UK's No.1 single

PJ & Duncan's 'Let's Get Ready To Rhumble' has topped the UK Official Singles Chart this Easter.

Ant McPartlin told The Official Charts hostess, Jameela Jamil, that both he and Declan Donnelly were "still a bit shell shocked from the week we've just had," and that they had "not even a slight suspicion" that the single would be back in the charts.

Jamil admitted 'Let's Get Ready To Rhumble' was the first single she ever bought, and that it will be the first track she'll play when she's out DJ-ing tonight. She also revealed that she thought the track could be the new 'Gangham Style' with kids all over the country learning the dance routine. McPartlin said that he and Donnelly will leave the original video as is, he said:

"We have no plans to re-do the video ... it just takes you back to 1994."

The song made it to No.1 after the duo performed the track on their ITV1 show Saturday Night Takeaway last weekend, prompting fans to download it.

The pair had several hits in the 1990s as PJ and Duncan, the names of their characters in TV drama Byker Grove.

The original 'Let's Get Ready to Rhumble' single got to number nine in 1994. All money raised from sales will be donated to ChildLine, a charity that Ant and Dec are both patrons for.
