SONGSTRESS Pixie Lott has knocked American superstar Jay-Z off the charts to scoop her second No.1 single.

The 18-year-old, who attended the Italia Conti Associate School in Chislehurst before moving on to the full-time Academy in Central London, hit the top spot with her tune Boys and Girls on Monday.

She had planned a party at Sugar Hut nightclub in Brentwood, Essex, to celebrate the news on Monday night, but was forced to cancel just hours before she was due to perform after a fire caused the roof to fall in.

Fans had gathered to watch the teen but brawls broke out when police turned some away for not having tickets.

Officers charged a 28-year-old man from Romford with assaulting a paramedic, being drunk and disorderly and using threatening words or behaviour.

A 16-year-old girl was charged with two counts of obstructing a police officer while a 40-year-old woman was cautioned for threatening behaviour.

The cause of the fire, which took three hours to extinguish, is being investigated.

Overnight sensation Ms Lott spent her childhood and early youth living in Bickley.
