It currently has a lead of 11,000 combined chart sales ahead of Michael Ball and Alfie Boe’s second album Together Again, which is on track to take the number two spot.

Gregory Porter’s Nat King Cole & Me is on course for third position, which would make it his highest charting album ever, while George Michael’s Listen Without Prejudice, which took number one last week, looks likely to slip to number four.

Pink’s Beautiful Trauma is currently in fifth spot.

On the Official Singles Chart, former Fifth Harmony member Camila Cabello is on course to land her first UK number one with her track Havana, featuring Young Thug.

The singer has spent three weeks at number two but finally has the top spot in her sights.
