In highly unsurprising news, this week’s album chart has been topped by late pop legend Michael Jackson, whose album of songs recorded between 1983 and 1999, ‘Xscape’, has proven unstoppable.

The Black Keys could only manage number two with their new effort, ‘Turn Blue’.

Meanwhile, in the singles chart, Rita Ora’s ‘I Will Never Let You Down’ also went straight in at number one, while John Legend’s ‘All Of Me’ continues its creditable run by holding on to number three.

One notable entry into the singles chart was Eurovision Song Contest winner Conchita Wurst with ‘Rise Like A Phoenix’ – in at number 17.
