Jess Glynne claims seventh Number 1 single with I'll Be There and sets new Official Chart record

I'll Be There climbs to Number 1, plus there are big climbers and new entries for Years & Years, Selena Gomez and Jorja Smith.

Congratulations to Jess Glynne, whose latest single I’ll Be There claims the Number 1 spot on this week’s Official Singles Chart.

Jess edged out some seriously strong competition from Clean Bandit to score her seventh UK chart-topper, which extends her record for the most Number 1 singles by a British female artist.

Celebrating the news, Jess told "I’m speechless! all I can say is thank you to everyone who has supported the song. I find it incredibly insane that I hold a record for the most Number 1s for a British female. It’s insane to think I’ve achieved that so early in my career. It’s not just me on all those songs – I have to thank everybody I’ve collaborated with.”
