Rounding out the top five are holiday albums Christmas by Michael Buble and Merry Christmas Baby by Rod Stewart in fourth and fifth place, respectively.

In the UK singles chart, Murs reigned supreme with his Flo Rida collaboration Troublemaker, while Bruno Mars' Locked Out Of Heaven jumped seven spots to number two.

Diamonds by Rihanna rose to three, Labrinth and Emeli Sande's Beneath Your Beautiful remained at four, and Girl On Fire by Alicia Keys held on to fifth place.
