Ed Sheeran claims his eighth Number 1 on the Official Singles Chart with Take Me Back To London ft. Stormzy, rising ten places from last week.
The climb in Ed and Stormzy’s chart position is thanks to the release of its music video and a remix of the track by producer Sir Spyro featuring rising star Aitch and Birmingham rapper JayKae.
