I think it might be Billie Piper for the 80s as well?

Correct with both Billies!
Billie Eilish, born 18 December 2001 with "No Time To Die" (topical)
Billie Piper, born 22 September 1982 with "Because We Want To"

Afraid not. Lennon's first solo number one was in 1980 and someone born in the 1940s beat the Beatles by six years!

I misunderstood the question, I thought it had to be the person born earliest in the decade to have a number one.

I will probably go with my original idea, which is Cliff Richard?

Understand. Of course artists born earlier in one decade are more likely to be the answer, as they're more likely to have a number one as a teenager before all others. Jimmy Osmond is the biggest anomaly as he was born latest in his decade and had a number one earliest in the next decade.
Anyway, Cliff Richard (born 5 days after John Lennon) is not the answer for the 1940s, I'm afraid.

I'll have a guess at Tiffany - I Think We're Alone Now - for the 1970s.

Born 2 October 1971, Tiffany is correct.
