Black Eyed Peas go back to Number One

Plus Michael Jackson is still top of the album chart

Black Eyed Peas have gone back to Number One after spending a week off the top spot in UK’s Official Singles Chart.

The Los Angeles band knocked Tinchy Stryder into second place after ‘I Gotta Feeling’ returned to the summit.
