The 17-year-old said claiming the top spot in this week's chart was "really beyond expectations".

Celine Dion has the second-highest new entry of the week with Loved Me Back To Life, her highest-charting album since 2002.

Little Mix's album Salute is another new entry at four, while Elvis Presley features at five with compilation album The Nation's Favourite Elvis Songs.

Sir Cliff Richard's The Fabulous Rock 'N' Roll Songbook is another new entry at number seven.

Its position means that this week is the first time in 36 years that he and Presley have both featured in the Official Albums Chart Top 10.
