House star Hugh Laurie's debut album 'Let Them Talk' is just behind Adele in the battle for Number One spot in the UK albums chart this week (beginning May 9).

The actor's debut is sandwiched between Adele's '21', which is heading for a 14th week at Number One, and her debut '19', which is currently Number Three.

Miles Kane is presently Number Six with his debut album 'Colour Of The Trap', while Wild Beasts are set to enter at Number 11 with their third album, 'Smother'. The latest compilation from Glee is also a new entry, with 'Glee: The Music Presents The Warblers' placed at Number Five.

Jessie J and Chase and Status both return to the midweek Top 10 this week, at numbers Eight and 10 respectively.

In the singles chart David Guetta is on course to be Number One with 'Where Them Girls At', his collaboration with Nicki Minaj and Flo Rida, which entered at Number Three last week. Lady Gaga's new single 'The Edge Of Glory' is Number Seven in the midweek countdown.
