Rounding out the top five is UK TV talent show winner Shayne Ward’s That’s My Goal.
In the European albums chart, James Blunt’s Back To Bedlam climbs back to the top spot, while Madonna’s Confessions On A Dance Floor falls to number two.

Madonna fuelled reports she is suffering from exhaustion when she failed to perform at the NRJ Music Awards in Cannes, France, on Saturday.
The Hung Up hitmaker, 47, withdrew from the prestigious awards ceremony on Friday – giving organisers an uncharacteristic one day’s notice.
A source tells French publication Le Parisien, “She is exhausted. She rehearsed a lot of her routine for the video and she is on a strict diet to maintain her young and sexy image.”
However, the singer’s publicist Liz Rosenberg, insists Madonna is busy “filming her new video”.

Rumours are abuzz that all is not well in the kingdom of the ‘Queen of pop’ Madonna and director hubby Guy Ritchie, and that the two are on the verge of putting an end to their five year old marriage.
An insider revealed that the singer had started concentrating more on her career than her marriage.
“She has been spending very little time with him. She is obsessed with everything related to her career at this point. The album ["Confessions on a Dance Floor"] is a hit, and that is all she seems to care about these days. A split? Not sure. Less time together? Most definitely,” the New York Daily News quoted the source, as saying.
However, Madonna’s rep Liz Rosenberg, rubbished rumours of a split, and said that all was well between the couple.
“Mr. and Mrs. Ritchie seemed perfectly comfortable and adoring of each other. … My sense is that they’re quite a happy, content couple,” she said.

Jon Bon Jovi has apologised to Madonna after wrongly accusing her of exploiting her children by proudly displaying them at movie premieres.
The Livin’ On A Prayer hitmaker berated the pop superstar for allowing Lourdes, nine, and Rocco, five, to attend public events, advising her to shield them from media intrusion.
But the 43-year-old soon realised his mistake after the Material Girl hit back, insisting her children had never attended a single film opening.
He says, “I put my foot in my mouth recently with a comment about Madonna. Let me apologise because I don’t know the woman.”
