And the fastest selling single of the year goes to....Cheryl Cole

It appears having your own prime-time Saturday night TV show is a great platform to promote your new single, because according to midweek chart sales Cheryl Cole’s ‘Fight For This Love' is the year’s fastest selling UK single.

After doing a storming performance on The X-Factor on Sunday, the Geordie pop tart’s debut solo single is selling by the tanker full, even trumping the current No.1 from Alexandra Burke’s ‘Bad Boys.’ In a nutshell, it's guaranteed to top the charts on Sunday.

"This will be the second successive week of massive single sales – led by Cheryl” said Martin Talbot of the Official Charts Company whilst rubbing his hands together in glee. “Her first day's sales are just amazing and put her in pole position to top the Official Singles Chart on Sunday. Together with Alexandra Burke, she is likely to set the sales standard by which everyone will be judged for the rest of the year, in the run-up to Christmas."

Maybe Cheryl can buy some new trousers now eh?
