Rick Astley is UK Number One!

Rick Astley has made an explosive comeback with his first album in 11 years by entering the UK Album chart at Number 1!

It was a fairy tale ending to a week that saw the most intense battle for the top spot for over 20 years! The midweek chart had Tom Odell 218 copies ahead but by Wednesday Rick had closed the gap to just 14 copies.

But it was Rick who emerged UK Number One when the Official Chart Company made their announcement on Friday!
