Stranger Things have happened...Kate Bush and Sex Pistols set for UK Top 5 success this week

Kate Bush's viral hit Running Up That Hill is challenging for Number 1 this week - while the Sex Pistols could return to the Top 5 for the first time in 43 years.

It could be the battle of two pop titans. Kate Bush’s classic Running Up That Hill could leap up six places to  Number 2 this week – can it challenge Harry Styles for Number 1? Originally released in 1985, where the track peaked at Number 3, it could reach its highest-ever peak thanks to Stranger Things.

Sex Pistols re-released two very special vinyl pressings of their controversial anti-monarchist anthem God Save The Queen and are looking to re-enter the Top 5 for the first time in 43 years.

Following a stirring performance at last night’s Platinum Party at the Palace, Sam Ryder’s Eurovision anthem SPACE MAN might break back into the top 10, currently its up two to Number 9.
