The I'm A Celebrity star found out he'd topped the iTunes chart in a letter from his son, but he was convinced the youngster was winding him up.
Nick, 56, released a musical offering called Every Kind Of People last year and his Universal Records disc has garnered new interest since his turn on the jungle reality show.
His cover of Make You Feel My Love made it to number one thanks to a campaign by Chris Moyles, and in a new interview with the DJ, Nick reveals he finds the news hilarious.

He added: "I’ll tell you now, if there are any royalties that come out of it, they’re all going to go to charities, the military charities I support.
Speaking on This Morning today, Nick showed off his impressive weight loss, saying he lost 2.2 stone in 19 days.
He also publicly apologised for wearing budgie smugglers to collect water for camp, which caused quite a stir with viewers.
