Cher Lloyd's debut single 'Swagger Jagger' has gone straight to Number One tonight (August 7).

The opinion-dividing track knocked last week's chart-toppers - and fellow X Factor losers - JLS' 'She Makes Me Wanna' down to Number Two after a one-week stint at the summit.

There were other singles chart new entries for Christina Perri - in at Number 17 with 'Jar Of Hearts' - and Benny Bessai, whose collaboration with Gary Go, 'Cinema', went in at Number 24.

Further down the chart, Eminem's 'Space Bound' debuted at Number 36, two places ahead of Jay-Z and Kanye West's 'Otis'.

In the albums chart, Amy Winehouse clocked up a second posthumous week at Number One with her 2006 LP 'Back To Black'. Her 2003 debut 'Frank' moved up two places to Number Three - its highest-ever chart placing.

There were two new entries in the chart, albeit in its lower reaches - Viva Brother's debut 'Famous First Words' was straight in at Number 34, while former X Factor contestant Rhydian went in at Number 39 with 'Waves'.
