James Arthur

X Factor winner James Arthur is back at the top of the singles' chart, a week after missing out on the Christmas number one.

Arthur's single Impossible was beaten to the festive top spot by charity track 'He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother'.

The single, featuring artists like Robbie Williams and Rebecca Ferguson, is raising money for the families who were affected by the Hillsborough disaster in 1989.

The cover of a big hit from 1969 fell to number five in Sunday's chart.

Will.i.am's Scream & Shout, featuring Britney Spears, is at number two, with Psy's Gangnam Style in third place and Olly Murs' Trouble at number four.

Emeli Sande stayed at the top of the album charts.

Our Version Of Events is already the biggest-selling album of the year, with sales of more than 1.32 million.

'Dream come true'

24-year-old James Arthur won X Factor 2012 after beating Jahmene Douglas in the series final.

He shot straight to number one in the singles' chart with his first release.

At the time, the singer thanked fans, saying: "You've made my dreams come true."
