David Hasselhoff fans are planning to hijack the charts in an effort to get 'The Hoff' to number one. Devoted followers of the Knight Rider star have launched an online campaign to get him to the top of the UK charts at www.gethasselhofftonumber1.com.

The website states: "Think what 'The Hoff' has given to the world. Knight Rider, Baywatch, the reunification of East and West Germany. Untold laughter from forwarded e-mails of him in hotpants. He's given a lot. It's time we gave something back."

"'The Hoff' is having a hard time. He's split from his wife. He needs a lift. Let's help him out with something that would mean the world to him."

Once 75,000 people have signed up to the campaign a 'Hoff Alert' will be sent out telling fans to simultaneously purchase a Hasselhoff single to be determined later from iTunes, pushing the single to number one.
