LONDON (REUTERS) - English singer Lily Allen retained the number one spot in Britain's single charts for a second week running on Sunday, putting her in a strong position to dominate the charts at Christmas.

Allen's version of Somewhere Only We Know - a song originally released in 2004 by British band Keane - features in a major pre-Christmas advertising campaign for the John Lewis department store.

It had previously seized the top spot in November only to lose it a week later before reclaiming it last week.

Accompanied by an animated film about a bear and a hare, Allen's track fought off a late challenge from Leona Lewis whose song One More Sleep shot from 34th to number three, the Official Charts Company said.
