Acts with the most UK number two hit singles

I recently had an email from coxless4444 asking if I had ever done a feature on the acts who have had the most number two hits in the UK singles chart. On checking, I realised I hadn’t so let’s put that straight right now. Here is a list of the 22 acts to have had five or more songs to make the runner up position on the chart.
