I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles) hits No. 1

VIDEO: Watch Peter Kay and Matt Lucas sing The Proclaimers’ ‘I’m Gonna Be’, which has gone to No 1 in the UK singles chart.

It means Scottish folk twins the Proclaimers finally celebrated a No 1 single. Their classic 80s hit (I’m Gonna Be) 500 Miles claimed the top spot in the singles chart after being reworked in aid of Comic Relief by the comics.

The track, which only reached number 11 in 1988, now features vocals from Little Britain character Andy Pipkin, played by Lucas, and Kay’s Phoenix Nights creation Brian Potter.

It had already entered the charts last week at three, while another Comic Relief single, Walk This Way featuring Girls Aloud and the Sugarbabes, was the chart topper.

This dropped to two this week while Avril Lavigne had the Top Ten’s only new entry with Girlfriend at three.
