LONDON (Reuters) - Boy band McFly secured their seventh number one on Sunday with “Baby’s Coming Back”, knocking Beyonce and Shakira off the top spot.

The pop quartet’s new single went straight to number one in its debut week, according to the Official UK Charts Company, which compiles the weekly pop countdown.

“Beautiful Liar”, a duet by Beyonce and Shakira, slipped to second, while R&B singer Akon climbed to third with “Don’t Matter”.

New York hip hop group Gym Class Heroes slipped one place to fourth with “Cupid’s Chokehold”.

There was some consolation for Britain’s Eurovision entry Scooch after their disappointing second-last finish in Helsinki on Saturday. Their airline-themed song “Flying the Flag (For You)” climbed more than 100 places to number five.

American band Linkin Park’s “What I’ve Done” rose to number six, while “Give It To Me”, a collaboration by Timbaland, Nelly Furtado and Justin Timberlake, dropped to seven.

Welsh rockers Manic Street Preachers’ “Your Love Alone Is Not Enough” fell to eighth and Canadian singer Avril Lavigne’s “Girlfriend” slipped to ninth.

Completing the top 10 was U.S. R&B singer Amerie with “Take Control”.
