According to today’s Official Chart Update, Olly Murs is not only on course to hold onto Number 1 on the Official Singles Chart for a second week running with Troublemaker FT Flo Rida, but his new album, Right Place, Right Time, is currently leading the race to Number 1 on this week’s Official Albums Chart, too.

At this midway stage Olly’s third album is outselling his closest competitor, One Direction’s Take Me Home (Number 2), by more than two copies to one. 

If the former X Factor star and current Xtra Factor host can maintain his lead, it will be the fourth Official Chart Double this year; Sing by Gary Barlow And The Commonwealth Band topped the Official Singles Chart and Official Albums Chart in June, while Robbie WilliamsCandy and Take The Crown, and One Direction’s Little Things and Take Me Home did the Official Charts Double earlier this month.
