Oasis hit No1 spot for only a week.

Oasis have been toppled from the top of the charts - after only a week.

This year's fastest selling single - D'You Know What I Mean - was knocked off by former chart topper Puff Daddy.

Oasis' first release for more than a year went straight into number one with sales at 370,000.

But the Puff Daddy and Faith Evans single I'll Be Missing You, a reworking of the Police hit Every Breath You Take, is now No1. Although the Oasis hit burst into the charts during its first week, sales during the second dropped to a fifth of the original level.

Pundits were surprised a band like Oasis - fronted by Liam Gallagher -were unable to hold on for longer.

In its first week the single accounted for one in every five sold.

It raced out of the shops even faster than the Spice Girls' last single, Mama/Who Do You Think You Are?

The highest first week sale ever was Band Aid's Do They Know It's Christmas which sold 750,000 when it came out.
