Vera Lynn tops Dizzie Rascal, but unsure who he is

Not many 92-year-olds would be able to tell you who the UK's current rap stars are.

And although she's a chart-topper, it seems Dame Vera Lynn is no different.

The singer, who topped the charts in September after many years away from showbiz, has admitted she didn't really know who she pipped to the post.

"I loved beating Dizzee Rascal to number one," she says. "Even though I'm not quite sure who he is."

Vera, the oldest living artist to reach the top of the charts, has been tipped for a Christmas number one with her album, We'll Meet Again: The Very Best Of Vera Lynn.
