Ellie Goulding has ended Mark Ronson's seven-week reign at the top of the singles chart after Love Me Like You Do toppled Uptown Funk from the number one spot.

Love Me Like You Do, which is lifted from the soundtrack to the Fifty Shades Of Grey film, is the fastest-selling single of the year so far, with a combined chart sales total of more than 172,000.

Ellie outsold Mark's track, featuring Bruno Mars, by more than 87,000 copies.

It is Ellie's 15th UK Top 40 single and second number one, following 2013's Burn.

Down one place to number three in the line-up from the Official Charts Company was Hozier's Take Me To Church, followed by Rihanna, Kanye West and Sir Paul McCartney's FourFiveSeconds at four and Meghan Trainor's Lips Are Movin at five.

On the albums chart, Bob Dylan scored his eighth UK chart-topper as Shadows In The Night went in at number one.

His 36th studio album features covers of 10 pop standards made famous by Frank Sinatra, and outsold its nearest competitor, Ed Sheeran's X, which remained at number two, by nearly 5,000 copies this week.

Dylan enjoyed his last number one in the UK album charts in 2009, with Together Through Life.

Last week's number one, Meghan Trainor's Title, slipped two places to number three, while Sam Smith's In The Lonely Hour held firm at four.

Rounding out the top five is Irish singer-songwriter Hozier's eponymous debut, which climbed one place.
