Catfish and the Bottlemen's The Ride hits Number 1: "We're made up with that!"

Plus ABC and Fifth Harmony are new Top 10 entries in the Official Albums Chart.

It has been quite The Ride for Catfish and the Bottlemen since their BRIT Award win, and they have now reached their next destination - Number 1.

The Welsh Rock band's second studio album The Ride betters their previous effort The Balcony by nine places, reaching Number 1 comfortably with combined chart sales of 38,000. 

The group told "It's class to be number 1 with the new album! We're made up with that. Thank you!"

Hitting the top spot is just another reason why 2016 has been the band's biggest year yet. They beat James Bay, Wolf Alice, Years & Years and Jess Glynne to Best British Newcomer at the 2016 BRIT Awards and will embark on a seven-date UK tour in November.

Sticking with the Number 2 spot is Drake's Views (also the most streamed collection of the week), and Beyoncé climbs one place to 3 with Lemonade. Coldplay's A Head Full of Dreams jolts four places in anticipation for their Wembley Arena dates later this month (4), and ABC are a new entry at 5 with The Lexicon of Love II, their first Top 10 in 26 years.
