Irish threesome The Script have entered the UK album chart at number one, repeating the success of their debut.

Their record Science and Faith beat a host of acts who released new albums this week, including Linkin Park, Robert Plant and Phil Collins.

The band's 2008 self-titled album has sold two million copies worldwide, the Official Charts Company says.

Former X Factor winner Alexandra Burke secured a second week at number one with her single Start Without You.

The singer was followed by Taio Cruz, Katy Perry and The Script, who inched up one place to number four with For The First Time.

Their highest placing in the singles chart to date is with The Man Who Can't Be Moved, which peaked at two in August 2008.

The only new entries inside the top 10 were from Usher at seven - a climber of seven places - and Impossible by Shontelle, straight in at number 10.

The Script's leader singer Danny O'Donoghue said: "We believe soul is not just a genre of music it's a human condition.

"We have put ours into this music and we are so humbled by the response this album has received."
