Three Lions Is Officially Number 1 In The UK
It's coming home - and Baddiel, Skinner & The Lightning Seeds have the Number 1 song!
After England reached the World Cup semi-final, 'Three Lions' by Baddiel, Skinner & The Lightning Seeds has gone to number one!
Marvin Humes & Kat Shoob revealed this afternoon that the iconic football anthem had knocked Clean Bandit’s 'Solo' off the top spot, twenty-two years after its original release.
'Three Lions' climbed 32 places to the top of The Official Vodafone Big Top 40 following England’s 2-0 win against Sweden on Saturday, which sent Gareth Southgate’s World Cup heroes into the semi-final and the song to number one.
Announcing the news, Marvin said: “What an incredible day! It’s only right that ‘Three Lions’ is number one on the chart. Our boys in Russia are doing us so proud. The nation has come together and hopefully this is only the beginning of the celebrations!”
