The late Rik Mayall’s 2010 single Noble England looks set for top five berth in the Official Singles Chart this Sunday after fans campaigned to get the comedy legend to the top spot following his death on June 9.
The ‘lost’ World Cup single could challenge for the top places this weekend, according to the Official Charts Company. Noble England was originally released for the 2010 World Cup. Following a social media campaign the song reentered the charts at number 38 on Wednesday.
By Thursday it surged 27 places to number 11, and according to latest sales data broke through the top 10 barrier to land at number 8 this morning, according to sales up to midnight last night.
