Take That remain at top of UK album chart

By
Take That 'Progress'
Take That have notched up a third week at the top of the album chart with Progress, thereby achieving a career total of 52 weeks at number one across both of the UK music charts.

The five-piece boyband - who are only the eighth act ever to achieve this feat - have sold over 900,000 copies of their latest effort since its release and currently sit at second place on the album chart of the year so far behind Lady GaGa's The Fame.

Last year's X Factor runner-up Olly Murs also makes a record breaking appearance with his self-titled album, which posted the biggest first week sales for a debut artist of 2010 thus far, after shifting over 108,000 copies.

Also arriving in the top ten this week are Camden-based hip-hop group N-Dubz, who settle in at seven with Love Live Life, and Welsh songstress Duffy, whose sophomore effort Endlessly lands at nine.

Elsewhere on this week's rankings, The Black Eyed Peas return with their sixth studio album The Beginning, which debuts at 18, and after three consecutive weeks of falling Rumer's Seasons Of My Soul manages to climb back into the top half of the chart after advancing five spots to 20.

1. (1) Take That: 'Progress'
