Since our first chart in 1953 there have been 1400 number ones (this includes those songs that made it to the top spot more than once).
565 of these only stayed at number one for 1 week, 307 for 2 weeks & 219 for 3 weeks
Only five artists have managed to stay 'Top of the Pops' for more than 10 consecutive weeks in a row. They are:
- Tones And I with Dance Monkey (11 weeks in 2019)
- Ed Sheeran with Shape Of You (13 weeks in 2017)
- Wet Wet Wet with Love Is All Around (15 weeks in 1994)
- Drake ft Wizkid & Kyla with One Dance (15 weeks in 2016)
- Bryan Adams with (Everything I Do) I Do It For You (16 weeks in 1991)
From the latest statistics available (2019) there
were 712,680 new births in a single year in the UK (England, Scotland, Wales
& Northern Ireland) and over 130 million worldwide.
That's just under 2,000 per day for the UK and over 356,000 every day across the world.
The most popular date for births in the UK is 26th September (conceived over Christmas the preceeding year) and the least common are 25th/26th December (induced labour and cesarean births are not usually scheduled for these days).
You can find out what song was number one in the charts on the day you were born from our annual chart lists (above) or simply enter your date of birth from the drop down boxes and you'll see every number one for every birthday, all in one place.
