Michael Ball and Alfie Boe's Together leads the Official Albums Chart Update

Will Ball and Boe finally score a Number 1 album after six weeks of Top 5 glory?

There is no sign of a curtain call for Michael Ball and Alfie Boe on this week’s Official Albums Chart.

Together, the collaborative album from the musical theatre performers, has been a permanent fixture of the Official Albums Chart Top 5 for over a month, selling over 250,000 copies in its first five weeks on sale.

The album, which is Michael's seventh UK Top 10 album and Alfie's fifth, is yet to hit Number 1, finishing at Number 2 three times behind the likes of Robbie Williams, Little Mix and last week, The Rolling Stones. However, that could be about to change this Friday.

After the duo's ITV special Ball & Boe: One Night Only last weekend, the duo are now set to grab the top spot, which would mark Alfie's first UK Number 1 album and Michael's first in 24 years. Michael's self-titled debut album hit Number 1 in May 1992.

Falling one slot to Number 2 at the midweek stage are The Rolling Stones with Blue & Lonesome, just ahead of Elvis Presley's The Wonder of You, which rebounds one places to Number 3. Little Mix's Glory Days (4) and Olly Murs' 24 HRS (5) complete the Top 5.

New entries and high climbers

Phil Collins' The Singles continues to perform well, up four places midweek to Number 11, while J Cole's brand new album 4 Your Eyez Only starts at 14.

Adele's 25 is set for a return to the Top 20, up four to Number 17 for what could be a 47th week in the Top 20, while Rick Astley's 50 is also on the rise, leaping five places at the halfway stage to Number 20.

Finally, Neil Young's 37th studio album Peace Trail could debut inside this week’s Top 40, currently at Number 38.
