Dominic Frisby's bid for a Brexit No1 fails

EU anthem, Ode To Joy, sells more

Comedian Dominic Frisby as fallen well short of his dream of having a Brexit Day No 1.

In yesterday's official charts, his Remainer-baiting track 17 Million Fucks Offs only managed No 43 in the top 100.

However, it was No 2 in the download charts –  beaten only by the  EU’s official anthem, Beethoven’s Ode To Joy. The track, as conducted by Andre Rieu, had been championed by Remainers staging their own pro-EU campaign.

Frisby – who had intended to stand as a  Brexit Party candidate at last year’s general election before he stood aside for personal reasons – had prepared himself for disappointment before the official positions were revealed last night, suggesting that the system was stacked in favour of big record labels. 

And not missing an opportunity to make another swipe at Remainers, he told Chortle: ‘If I don't win, I will of course be demanding that this week's Official Charts be re-run, because people who bought Ode To Joy or Eminem didn't know what they were buying.’

Lewis Capaldi has this week's No 1, with Before You Go.
