LONDON, UK (Top40 Charts) - Bob the Builder, the animated children's character, has scored his second number one single hit with Mambo Number 5.
The BBC character, voiced by Neil Morrissey, beat off competition from Supermen Lovers's Starlight, which was second, to take the top spot.
Artful Dodger, featuring ex-All Saint Melanie Blatt, entered the chart at number six, with TwentyFourSeven.
Fat Boy Slim, who won six MTV music awards last week, had to content himself with a number 30 placing for the charity single, Ya Mama.
Other high-profile stars to have been humbled by Bob include Macy Gray, in at the chart at number 23 and American band Staind.
Mambo No 5 is a remake of the Latino number which made Lou Bega a one-hit wonder in 1999.
The song was written in the 1950s by Cuban Prez Prado and has been used as the theme tune for Channel 4's cricket coverage and also features in a Guinness advert.
Bob's song Can We Fix It? was the biggest-selling single of 2000 and was also the Christmas number one.
Bob the Builder is believed to be teaming up with Sir Elton John in a bid to land a second Christmas number one this year.
The musician is also taking a starring role in the animated show for a festive special.
