The trio keep Jakatta, Dido, BBMak and Backstreet Boys at bay in the singles war...

ATOMIC KITTEN have kept their claws in the top spot on the UK singles chart for a third week running with ‘WHOLE AGAIN’, beating off competition from highest new entry JAKATTA, whose ‘AMERICAN DREAM’ went in at Number Three.

It was one of five new entries in this week’s Top 10, being held off the Number Two slot by Wheatus’ ‘Teenage Dirtbag’. After the mass of publicity surrounding her Eminem collaboration, Dido had a new entry at Number Four with ‘Here With Me’, and held on to the top spot in the album chart.

In the singles chart, she was followed at Five by BBMak’s ‘Back There’, Backstreet Boys at Eight with ‘The Call’ and Debelah Morgan’s ‘Dance With Me’ at Number 10.

Nelly narrowly missed out on the Top 10, with ‘E.I.’ going in at Number 11, while Angelic’s ‘Can’t Keep Me Silent’ went in at 12, and the final of the week’s Top 20 new singles was Girls At Play at 18 with ‘Airhead’.

Other new entries in this week’s Top 40 were Vengaboys ‘Forever As One’ (28), Jools Holland & Jamiroquai’s ‘I’m In The Mood For Love’ (29), My Vitriol’s ‘Always Your Way’ (31) and The Orb’s ‘Once More’ (38).

David Gray had a new entry in the albums chart at Number Seven with his Brit-nominated ‘Lost Songs 95-98’, while the only other new entry in the Top 40 albums was Lowgold’s ‘Just Backward Of Square’ at 33.
