ROUGH CUT.

NO REPORTER NARRATION.

LadBaby, whose real name is Mark Hoyle, recorded his version of Starship's 1985 hit "We Built This City" with his wife and two sons, changing the lyrics to pay tribute to the British snack, a puff pastry roll filled with sausage meat.

LadBaby, who posts videos about his experience of fatherhood and won a "Celebrity Dad of the Year" award in June, has just under three million followers on Facebook and more than 470,000 subscribers to his YouTube channel.

The Official Charts Company said his single had clocked up 75,000 sales, 18,500 ahead of his closest rival.

Proceeds from the single's sale go to UK foodbank charity, The Trussell Trust.

"We Built This City" pushed last week's chart-topper, Grande's "Thank U Next", to no.

3 while Ava Max's "Sweet but Psycho" song was at no.
