Lady Gaga has clung onto No 1 in the singles chart, but her album The Fame was toppled from the top spot by Boyzone.

Telephone, the single featuring Beyonce, enjoyed a second week at the top of the charts.

But the flamboyant singer's hopes of a second double celebration were thwarted by Boyzone whose tribute album to Stephen Gately, Brother, returned to the top of the charts.

Brother went straight in at No 1 on March 14 but dropped to No 3 last week.

This week's rise follows the band's emotional television show Boyzone: A Tribute to Stephen Gately which was broadcast on ITV1 last Sunday.

Stephen, 33, was found dead in an apartment on the Spanish holiday island of Majorca last October.

The band's latest single Gave It All Away, which features the last vocals Gately recorded before he died, rose 19 places to number 10 in Sunday's chart.

Usher featuring scored the only new entry in the top 40 singles with OMG charting at No 13, The Official UK Charts Company said.

There were several new entries in the top 40 albums, including two in the top 10.

Laura Marling's I Speak Because I Can went straight in at No 4 and Goldfrapp's Head First charted at No 6.
