Britain's Got Talent finalists Richard and Adam Johnson have notched up four weeks at the top of the UK albums chart - the first artists to do so this year.

The singing brothers, from Holywell in North Wales, are at number one with their debut The Impossible Dream.

Ellie Goulding's Burn is the number one single for the second week in a row, the Official Charts Company said.

And Daft Punk's Get Lucky has become the first single of 2013 to register double platinum sales of 1.2 million.

Richard and Adam came third on Britain's Got Talent in June. Their debut album features classical renditions of tracks including The Power of Love, Unchained Melody, Amazing Grace and Ave Maria.

Elsewhere on the albums chart, Rudimental remained at number two with Home.

They were followed by Travis with Where You Stand at number three, which is the Scottish band's highest chart position for a decade.

US singer John Mayer was a new entry at number four with Paradise Alley, while Stereophonics rose to number five with their eighth album, Graffiti on the Train.
