Ellie Goulding has spent her third week at the top of the UK singles chart, holding off a challenge from Irish singer-songwriter Hozier.

Goulding remained in the top spot with Love Me Like You Do, from the Fifty Shades of Grey soundtrack.

Her song was streamed a record 2.58 million times last week.

Hozier's hit Take Me To Church is at number two. It has now spent seven weeks in the top five, but has yet to climb number one.
