Florence and The Machine singer Florence Welch has revealed her delight at finally topping the chart with debut album Lungs.

The record, which originally peaked in second place in July, knocked Paolo Nutini's Sunny Side Up from the top spot on Sunday.

"Number one is amazing," she told The Sun. "The music world is a funny place. It's like you can now get a second shot.

"The first impression isn't everything and people aren't fed up of us yet. But you need to keep things fresh and I'm now working on a new album."

The 23-year-old, who has been touring solidly since the record's release, admitted that she struggles to manage with her busy schedule.

"I've reached breaking point a few times before myself. It's so nerve-wracking, which is exhausting," she said.

"You put everything into your shows. You don't want to ever feel like you are giving less than 100%. Sometimes you just have to get through it."

Welch recently revealed that she plans to take more risks on her second album.
