The spoof apology song -- ' Nick Clegg Says I'm Sorry' -- has entered the top 150 after the Liberal Democrat leader gave permission to the track's creator, satirical website www.thepoke.co.uk, to release it as a charity single, benefiting an NHS children's foundation.

The song only went on sale at iTunes on Friday night leaving it at a disadvantage, as the chart's other songs have had since last Sunday to climb their way towards the top.

Meanwhile, Dublin band The Script held on to number one for a second week with 'Hall of Fame' -- which features Black Eyed Peas rapper Will.i.am -- despite a late challenge from YouTube sensation Psy.
