Nick Knowles' cover of Adele's 'Make You Feel My Love' has rocketed to Number 1 on iTunes, following a fan campaign to get the 'I'm a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!' contestant in the charts.

I'm A Celeb fans have been downloading Nick's song all morning and it's now gone to Number 1 on iTunes in the UK.

The DIY SOS presenter discussed his music career with his jungle campmates on last night's ITV show.

It led to Chris Moyles kickstarting a campaign on his Radio X Breakfast show today to get Nick's Adele cover to Number 1.

He's now in with a chance of knocking Ariana Grande off the Number 1 spot on this Sunday's Official Vodafone Big Top 40.

Ariana's 'thank u, next' has spent the last two weeks at the top but now faces an unusual challenge from the TV star.

Nick released his debut album Every Kind of People last year, though it struggled to make an impact in the charts.

Last night, viewers learnt of the surprising way that the album came about. Nick revealed that he was spotted by a record label executive after a rooftop jam in Soho with Scottish rockers Biffy Clyro.

Biffy have responded by tweeting the hashtag started by Dec and Holly Willoughby on the show: '#BiffyClyroNotEmbarrassedTheyJammedWithNickKnowles'
