An unknown folk-pop duo last night shot to No 1 in the UK singles chart with a song about a JCB digger.

Nizlopi, who are Luke Concannon and John Parker, both 27 and from Leamington Spa, Warwickshire, reached the top spot with "JCB", released on their own FDM label.

Their new entry beat Westlife's new release, also featuring Diana Ross, which is No 2.

The two new hits nudged the Pussycat Dolls tune "Stickwitu" two places down to No 3 while Madonna also slid by two to No 4 with "Hung Up".

The seasonal novelty single "Jingle Bells/U Can't Touch This", by Crazy Frog, was a new entry at No 5.

Also new into the top 10 were Robbie Williams at eight with Advertising Space and McFly at nine with Ultraviolet/The Ballad of Paul K.

"Ugly" by Sugababes and "My Humps" by Black Eyed Peas were at six and seven, sliding from third and sixth spot.

Westlife saw another single, "You Raise Me Up", plunge six places to No 10 in the list.

In the album chart Curtain Call - The Hits, a compilation by the rapper Eminem, remained at No 1 for a third week.

Robbie Williams's Intensive Care and Westlife's Face To Face held on to the second and third slots.
