Olly Murs scores a DOUBLE number one!
Well done, Olly!

Cheeky chappy Olly Murs always tends to have a big fat grin plonked on his face, and this weekend it's not without good reason, because he's just scored a double number one in the charts!

According to the Official Charts Company, The Xtra Factor presenter's third (yep, you read it, his THIRD) album, Right Place Right Time, reached the number one spot, selling 127,000 copies in its first week, making him 2012's fastest-selling solo artist!

Knocking One Direction's Take Me Home down to number two, Rihanna's Unapologetic was pushed into third spot. Michael Buble and Rod Stewart (ask your mum) made it to four and five respectively with their Christmas albums.

Olly's collaboration with Flo Rida, Troublemaker, also got to the number one spot - this time in the singles chart. He knocked Bruno Mars's Locked Out Of Heaven to second place and Rihanna's Diamonds came back to number three - definitely helped along by their appearances on last week's X Factor.


We can't be 100% sure exactly what gave Olly the boost he needed to sell so many records this week, but we definitely think him telling us about his willy in this week's mag contributed to a bit of the attention he's had recently...

Girls Aloud didn't do very well in the charts - maybe because we've all had their singles for yonks anyway - but only managed to get to number 9 with their Greatest Hits compilation, Ten.

Which is a bit of a shame, if you ask us!
