BOB LAYS FOUNDATION FOR 2001

...And the millennium if you're counting...

In a week slow in singles sales with everyone settling down after Christmas, Bob The Builder held onto the Number One slot

for the third week. This makes the single the first Number One of the new millennium.

Meanwhile Westlife swallowed the role of the vanquished as

they plummeted to number four.

In the album charts The Beatles compilation ‘1’ remains at Number

One while Eminem’s ‘The Marshall Mathers LP’ climbs up to two.
