Justin Timberlake spends a second week at Number 1 on the Official Singles Chart with Mirrors.

Justin Timberlake is unmoved from the singles throne this week, as Mirrors scores a second week at Number 1 on the Official Singles Chart.

Last weekend, the former *NSync star topped the chart for the first time since 2006 comeback single Sexyback. The track has since resisted competition from Bruno Mars whose latest single When I Was Your Man climbs five places to Number 2 this week. Mirrors is the second single taken from forthcoming studio album The 20/20 Experience, due out March 18.

New Entries And High Climbers

18 year old California-raised actress Bridgit Mendler – star of Disney’s Wizards Of Waverly Place and the film Alvin And The Chipmunks: The Squeakuel – bags herself a UK Top 10 debut with Ready Or Not. The track contains a nod to the Fugees’ 1996 hit of the same name and finishes the race at Number 7.

Stereophonics notch up their 25th Top 40 hit (as lead artists) since the early days of their career in 1997. Their latest release Indian Summer climbs 11 places to Number 30 today, but it’s Fleetwood Mac who claim the week’s highest climber. The band’s 1988 Number 4 hit Everywhere, features as the soundtrack on 3’s new dancing Shetland pony TV advert, shooting up 72 places to Number 15.
