Maisie Peters today becomes the youngest British female solo artist in nine years to celebrate a Number 1 album with The Good Witch.

23-year-old Maisie’s second studio album, The Good Witch follows her debut release You Signed Up for This, which peaked at Number 2 in 2021.

The West Sussex-born singer-songwriter becomes the youngest British female to top the Official Albums Chart since Ella Henderson. Ella was 18 years old when her debut LP, Chapter One, reached the summit in 2014.

The Good Witch also tops the Official Record Store Chart, having sold the most physical copies in independent UK record shops this week.
