Justin Timberlake has secured his third Official UK Number Album in a row with 'The 20/20 Experience'.

The 'Mirrors' singer notched up sales of nearly 106,000 copies this week, making it the fastest selling album of 2013, toppling reigning title holder David Bowie. 'The 20/20 Experience' outsold the rest of this week’s Top Five combined, according to the Official Charts Company.

Timberlake's previous two albums, 2002's 'Justified' and 2006's 'FutureSex/LoveSounds', both reached the Official UK Number One top spot in their debut week in the chart.

Meanwhile, last week's Number One, David Bowie's 'The Next Day', drops one spot to Number Two. Emeli Sande holds firm at Number Three with 'Our Version Of Events', the Les Miserables soundtrack jumps six places to Number Four following the release of a new deluxe edition, while Bastille's 'Bad Blood' completes the Top Five.

Elsewhere, recently reunited Suede are at Number 10 with 'Bloodsports', Billy Bragg is at Number 13 with 'Tooth & Nail', Daughter's 'If You Leave' is at Number 16 and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club's 'Specter At The Feast' is at Number 31.

In the Official UK Singles Chart, The Saturdays have finally bagged their first UK Number One with 'What About Us', which features dancehall star Sean Paul. The track is this year's fastest selling single with opening week sales of 114,000.

Justin Timberlake's 'Mirrors' is down one place to Number Two, P!nk's 'Just Give Me A Reason' is at Number Three, 'When I Was Your Man' by Bruno Mars is Number Four and Bastille's 'Pompeii' is at Number Five.
