Daniel Bedingfield (born 3 December 1979) did it twice - with Gotta Get Thru This (2001) and If You're Not The One (2002).

Using the same logic of going for people who spent a long time at number one, Olivia Newton-John was number one on her birthday with Summer Nights. Surely at least one Beatle must have been number one on their birthday unsure.gif

Michael Jackson was #1 on his birthday with I Just Can't Stop Loving You in 1987.... until the new chart was announced later that day and he fell to #3 (Replaced with the iconic Never Gonna Give You Up!)

Paul McCartney in 1968 with The Ballad Of John & Yoko I think was the only one.

George Harrison was No. 1 on his birthday in 1971 with "My Sweet Lord".

Geri Halliwell was number 1 on her birthday in both 1996 "Wannabe" and 1998 "Viva Forever".
