Britney Spears and Will.i.am have prevented a chart topping return for Justin Timberlake by holding on to the Number One spot in the Official UK Singles Chart.

The duo also stopped 50 Cent from getting his first ever Official UK Singles Chart Number One, as his new track 'My Life, featuring Eminem and Maroon 5's Adam Levine, entered in at Number Two, reports the Official Charts Company.

50 Cent had been in the lead in the Midweek Chart, but Britney Spears and Will.i.am's 'Scream & Shout' clawed back the deficit to make it two weeks running at the top.

Justin Timberlake's comeback single, 'Suit & Tie', is at Number Three, 'I Knew You Were Trouble' by Taylor Swift is at Number Four and Rihanna completes this week's Top 5 with 'Stay'.

Meanwhile, in the Official UK Album Chart, the Les Misérables soundtrack becomes the first film cast recording to top the chart since Evita, almost 16 years ago.

Emeli Sande's 'Our Version Of Events' is down one to Number Two, Jake Bugg's self-titled debut album is at Number Three and Calvin Harris' '18 Months' is at Number Four.

Everything Everything will be celebrating as their second album 'Arc' gives them their first Top 10 placement, as it debuts in at Number Five, while A$AP Rocky's long-awaited debut, 'Long Live A$AP', is at Number 7.
