It is Glitter's most successful entry in the UK Singles Chart (it entered the chart at number-one and had a 14-week run in the Top 40), earning him the first platinum record (which at the time certified sales of 1 million copies) awarded to a British artist. It has sold 1.14 million copies in the UK as of November 2012, [2] although many former fans have since either destroyed, binned or donated their unwanted copies to charity shops.
