Reggae-pop hit Cheerleader is number one for the third week in a row.

A last-minute burst of interest saw the track Cheerleader, by singer Omi, land just over 11,000 combined chart sales and become the most streamed track of the week with nearly 3.16 million listens.

LunchMoney Lewis' Bills was just edged out for the top spot in the singles chart ahead of Wiz Khalifa's track See You Again at number three and Major Lazer's Lean On at number five who were each streamed over two million times this week.

The new entry Runaway (U & I) by Swedish production duo Galantis completes the top five.

In the album chart folk-rock band Mumford & Sons are celebrating their second week at number one with the long player Wilder Mind.

It is the first album to stay at the top of the chart for two weeks this year.

Wilder Mind was the most streamed, most physically purchased and most digitally purchased over the last seven days and beat nearest rival Sam Smith's In The Lonely Hour to the top spot, an Official Charts Company spokesman said.

Hozier's self-titled debut album climbs three places to number three, followed by Taylor Swift's 1989, and former chart-topper Paul Simon's The Ultimate Collection at number five.
