Pop band Busted, featuring Suffolk teenager Charlie Simpson, has stormed in to the charts at number 2.

Teenager Charlie, from Woodbridge, will be celebrating with bandmates Mattie Jay and James Bourne after Busted saw their single Year 3000 go in as a new entry at No 2.

Their debut single, What I Go To School For, went straight in at number three.

Busted has already notched up a string of television performances on the likes of T4 and RI:SE and the Ipswich-born 17-year-old, a former pupil at Brandeston Hall Junior School and Uppingham School in Rutland, joined the group after answering an advert in the New Musical Express.

Described as a cross between rockers Blink 182 and boy band Blue, Busted even turned down an offer from notorious Pop Idol judge Simon Cowell to join his label.

Other entries straight into the top ten include Jaimeson's True in at number four and Panjabi MC's Mundian to Bach Ke at number five. Layo & Bushwacka! are in at number eight with Love Story and at number ten it's a new entry for Feeder with Just the Way I'm Feeling.
