Olly Murs achieves his third UK chart-topping album

Olly Murs has scored a hat-trick with his latest album 'Never Been Better'. 

Murs' fourth LP has debuted at No. 1 on the UK chart and follows up his two previous chart-topping albums - 'Right Place, Right Time' (2012) and 'In Case You Didn't Know' (2011). His self-titled 2010 debut narrowly missed out on the top spot by peaking at No. 2. 

'Never Been Better' sold 93,000 copies this week, which is 20,000 more units than it's closest competitor - 'X' by Ed Sheeran, which is a non-mover at No. 2.

Last week's No. 1 from One Direction with 'Four' has now fallen to No. 3. Sam Smith's 'In The Lonely Hour' is down one to No. 4. Pink Floyd's 'The Endless River' is also down one to No. 5. 

Other than Olly Murs, further new entries to this week's album chart come from David Guetta at No. 8 with 'Listen', Susan Boyle with 'Hope' at No. 13, Boyzone just behind at No. 14 with 'Dublin To Detroit', Jools Holland's 'Sirens Of Song' at No. 17, Dave Arch & The Strictly Band’s 'Strictly Come Dancing' at No. 22, 'My Dream Duets' by Barry Manilow at No. 28, and Mary J Blige's 'The London Sessions' at No. 40. 

This week has also seen the release of the fastest-selling album of the year so far. 'Now That's What I Call Music! 89' has sold 283,000 copies since it's release on Monday (November 24).
