Mark Ronson's seven week reign at the top of the UK charts looks set to end - thanks to Ellie Goulding.

The musician and producer has enjoyed several weeks on top with Uptown Funk FT Bruno Mars.

But Ellie's Love Me Like You Do, which features in the Fifty Shades Of Grey soundtrack, has taken the lead in the race for this week's Official Singles Chart Number 1.

So far the track - Ellie's first solo release since Beating Heart last summer - has a sales figure of over 77,000, nearly 50,000 copies more than Uptown Funk.

It is expected to place at number one in the charts at the weekend.

Meanwhile Bob Dylan could be heading for his eighth chart-topping album this Sunday, replacing last week's number one, Title by Meghan Trainor, according to the Official Charts Company.

Bob has released his 36th studio album, Shadows In The Night, featuring songs made famous by Frank Sinatra.

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