Adele takes back her Official Albums Chart throne

Plus, new entries from Ronan Keating, Lissie and Kula Shaker.

She's been in the wilderness for a while, but today Adele says a big hello to the top of the Official Albums Chart once again. 

After ceding the Number 1 spot to David Bowie and Coldplay for five weeks, Adele's 25 is back on top following the star's powerful performance at Sunday's Grammys in LA. This gives 25 an eighth non-consecutive week at Number 1.

David Bowie's hits retrospective and former chart-topper Best of Bowie climbs back up a place to 2, while Justin Bieber's Purpose also advances a spot to Number 3.

Highest new entry of the week goes to Ronan Keating, scoring his eighth Top 10 hit with ninth studio album Time Of My Life, and completing the Top 5 is last week's Number 1 from Coldplay, with A Head Full Of Dreams.

New entries and high climbers

Little Mix are back in the Top 10 with Get Weird, after their performance of latest single Secret Love Song on Graham Norton's chat show last week, up seven places to Number 8.
