North West boyband Rixton stormed to the top of the singles chart with their first record - a moment that will be forever etched in their memories and on their skin after promising fans to mark the occasion with a tattoo.
The foursome, made up of Frontman Jake Roche, Charley Bagnall on guitar, Danny Wilkin on bass and keyboard and Lewi Morgan on drums, will each get an inking of a broken heart tonight, after learning their pop song Me And My Broken Heart reached number one.
While Jake is getting his on his bicep and Charley's will be etched on his rib, a nervous Lewi will get his marking on his thumb, while Danny hopes to hide his from his parents by having it done on his thigh.
Jake, the son of Blackpool TV presenter and singer with the The Nolans, Coleen Nolan, and actor Shane Ritchie told OfficialCharts.com: "Being Number One is probably the biggest thing ever that has happened to us in our lives.
"And it means a lot because it's in our home country, and that's something that's been the main goal for us, to really make an impact. It's a dream. Thank you to everyone who has bought it for your support."
The boyband knocked It's My Birthday by will.i.am FT Cody Wise off the chart summit after just one week on top, while by Ariana Grande FT Iggy Azalea is a non-mover at number two.
Jake and his celebrity family have been tweeting about the good news since it was announced.
Remember when I saw @jake_rixton supporting the Nolans all those years ago and now he's top of the charts! Wooow congratulations Rixton! ??
Oscar-winning director Ron Howard is to make a new documentary chronicling the early part of The Beatles' career, with the full support of the band and their families.
His film will focus on the period from their days performing in Liverpool's Cavern Club and their Hamburg residency up to their final paying concert in San Francisco's Candlestick Park in 1966.
Howard - who picked up an Academy Award for A Beautiful Mind - will cover what are known as "the touring years" in his film. After the Candlestick Park show, the Fab Four concentrated on the studio, playing publicly on only one other occasion with their rooftop gig in 1969 at their Savile Row HQ in London.
The new film is being made with the "full cooperation" of Sir Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, as well as the widows of John Lennon and George Harrison - Yoko Ono and Olivia Harrison.
Howard said he was "excited and honoured" to be working "on this astounding story of these four young men who stormed the world in 1964".

"I know a girl called Elsa, she's into Alka-Seltzer" - the inspiration for that famous line from Supersonic was a Rottweiler that belonged to Manchester sound engineer Dave Scott.

Noel says he wrote Supersonic in ten minutes and it's his favourite Oasis song.
It reached Number 31 in the charts in April 1994.
