Adele has matched separate records set by Madonna and The Beatles.

The 'Rolling In The Deep' singer claimed her ninth consecutive week at number one on the UK album chart with 21 this week, which equals Madonna's nine weeks at number one back in 1990 with her greatest hits compilation The Immaculate Collection.

She has also matched The Beatles' record for most consecutive weeks at number one in the 21st century. The Beatles' 1 spent nine weeks at the top in 2000/01.

Adele's debut album 19 is still holding firm at number two, despite being released 106 weeks ago.

She moved back to the top of the US Billboard 200 last week after falling to number two the week before. It means the London-born singer has spent a total of three weeks at the top of the US album chart to date.

The album has also broken the record for the most UK digital downloads to date.
