Cheryl Cole has recorded the fastest selling UK single of 2012 with 'Call My Name' and debuts in at Number One.

The track, which has been written and produced by Calvin Harris, is the singer's first release under the name of simply Cheryl and has knocked Gary Barlow and his Commonwealth Band down to Number 3 with their single 'Sing', reports the Official Charts Company.

Flo Rida's 'Whistle' is a non-mover at Number 2, Coldplay and Rihanna's collaboration 'Princess of China' jumped four places to land at Number 4 and Rudimental's 'Feel The Love' drops one place to Number 5.

While they may have been knocked off their perch in the UK Singles Chart, Gary Barlow and his Commonwealth Band will be celebrating after holding off Usher and Amy MacDonald, who debuted in at Number 3 and 2 respectively, to retain the UK Number 1 album slot with 'Sing' – the official Queen's Jubilee album.

Elsewhere in the UK Album Chart, Maximo Park are new in at Number 13 with their fourth album 'National Health', while Hot Chip debut at Number 14 with 'In Our Heads'.

Following on from their recent reunion shows, The Stone Roses have re-entered the chart with 'The Stones Roses (The Very Best Of) bouncing back into Number 21. Meanwhile, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs (AKA Orlando Higginbottom) failed to break into the Top 20 with his debut album 'Trouble' entering in at Number 35.
