Britney has shot to number one with “…Baby One More Time” and has scored one of the fastest-selling singles in UK chart history. The single sold 124,000 copies on Monday alone, 1000 more than Lenny Kravitz, the previous number one, had sold in six days.

Britney said: “I’m so pleased that my British fans like my record – it really means a lot to me. I’ve only been to London once in my life and it’s so great that people like me.”
