It shares, with Divide, the title for the second-longest unbroken run at Number One of the last 20 years, the Official Charts Company said.

The collection is at the top for a ninth week.

Adele’s 21 holds the longest consecutive reign at Number One from the past two decades, with 11 weeks at the top.
