Diana Vickers celebrates her first No.1 single with red wine and doughnuts with friends

She was knocked out of the 2008 series of The X Factor in the semi-final.

But Diana Vickers showed she didn't need the talent show Goliath behind her as she shot straight to the top of the charts with her debut single.

Her track Once knocked previous number one Usher's OMG off the top spot when the official charts were announced yesterday evening.


Excited: A clearly proud Diana Vickers celebrates reaching number one with her debut single Once with some red wine with friends at an Italian restaurant


Deserved: Diana takes a big gulp of the wine following the success of her single

And clearly in the mood to celebrate, Vickers decided to take her friends to an Italian restaurant in London, where they enjoyed a meal and wine.


1. Diana Vickers - Once
2. Usher - OMG
3. Chipmunk - Until You Were Gone
4. Plan B - She Said
5. Scouting for Girls - This Ain't A Love Song
6. Professor Green - I Need You Tonight
7. Kelis - Acapella
8. Timbaland - Carry out
9. Tina Turner - The Best
10. Selena Gomez & The Scene - Naturally

The 18-year-old singer couldn't keep the smile from her face as she chatted to friends keen to congratulate her, as well as taking calls from those who couldn't be there in person.

Vickers also held up a homemade congratulations card, drawn with black pen on a piece of paper torn from a notepad, as she sat in the restaurant.

Earlier in the day, Vickers had been photographed celebrating her success as she carried a bumper box of Krispy Kreme doughnuts from Harrods.

Vickers signed a record deal in March last year, but was given permission to put the recording of her album on hold so she could star in the West End production of Little Voice, for which she received rave reviews.

During her time on the X Factor, Vickers stood apart from the other candidates for her insistence on performing in bare feet and 'The Claw', the nickname for her bizarre hand movements while singing.

In a recent interview, she promised fans she would try to tone down her 'claw'.

She said: 'The claw - oh God. I don't even know why I do it, I have no idea. I literally just go free when I'm singing and I do really weird things.

Worried: Diana looks slightly concerned as a friend attempts to take away her mobile phone

'I haven't even sung live for ages as me, as Diana, so there might be some new movements popping up somewhere. I don't know, we'll see.'

She caused controversy when producers gave her special permission to 'sit out' week five after contracting laryngitis, which some viewers deemed unfair to the other finalists.


Hungry: The singer had been seen toting a bag full of gooey doughnuts earlier in the day, but was later seen holding the empty box

She was eliminated from the ITV show during the semi-final after losing the public vote.

Her exit culminated with her rumoured boyfriend Eoghan Quigg breaking down in tears as the pair hugged each other tightly on stage.

As a result of their close friendship, Vickers split from boyfriend Chris Jones while on the show.

Vickers is now dating a musical theatre actor/singer, but has refused to publicly name him.


New romance: After her brief fling with Eoghan Quigg, Vickers is now dating a mystery man who works in the theatre

In hindsight, Vickers is now grateful she didn't win the show.

She told Fabulous magazine: 'I'm so grateful I didn't win. I think the originality is stripped away from those who do make it.

'Between then and now, I've been given time to grow, do Little Voice, which I'd never been able to do had I won.'

Some reality show "losers" do benefit, a good example is Lemar.

Sadly, it's all going to end on Sunday as Usher is set to reclaim the number one spot.   According to midweek charts that is.
