Move over Take That! Feck off Westlife! There's a new group in town and they're taking the British pop scene by storm.

Irish boy-band the 'Bee-Geesus' have stormed in at number one after covering a Britney Spears classic.

'Oooh Feck! I did it again!' has proved to be poptastic for the three County Antrim pensioners who only a year ago all worked for the Irish Gas Board.

Albert, Finton and Cyril are three brothers from Ballymeena, in Northern Ireland, who decided to swap their redundancy benifits for a spell in a top London recording studio. The result was an album which many critics have tipped to be the hottest selling since Thriller by Michael Jackson.

"Aaach now, we're all big fans o' the auld pop music," said Finton yesterday, "It's hard tay bait the auld pop, so it is."

Lead vocalist and songwriter, Cyril, agreed and added, "We like thon Whitney Spears, so we do and yer man, Dustin Limbersnake, he's right an' good too."

The brothers had been in a Take-That tribute band called 'Take-Thon' before deciding to write and record their own music.

Their last single 'Love don't come easy in a shuck' struggled to chart in England but the follow up 'Oooh Feck! I did it again' has been filling the dance floors throughout the land.

The trio are to play the 'Town and Country' in London tonight before taking a well earned rest to attend Finton's up-coming wedding to long time sweetheart Dolly the sheep.
