Recent NME coverstars Kasabian are celebrating their second Number One album tonight as 'West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum' slides straight in at the peak.

It knocks Paolo Nutini off the summit, where he had sat for a week, and follows the Leicester outfit's second album 'Empire', which also went to the top in 2006.

On the single charts stage school graduate Pixie Lott enjoys a dream debut, hitting the top spot with her first single 'Mama Do'. The 18 year-old knocks last week's Number One from Black Eyed Peas to Number Two.

Lott, who is yet to release her first album, is the first British female artist in UK chart history to go straight to Number One apart from reality TV chart stars including Leona Lewis and Alexandra Burke, according to the Official UK Charts Company

The only other new entry inside the top 10 is 'When Love Takes Over' by David Guetta and Kelly Rowland, at Seven.

Back on the album chart, Black Eyed Peas head in at Three, just behind Nutini, with 'The End', while Little Boots debuts at Five with first album 'Hands' and Glastonbury headliner Bruce Springsteen enters at Seven with a new 'Greatest Hits'.

The Top 10 singles are:
1. 'Mama Do' - Pixie Lott
2. 'Boom Boom Pow' - Black Eyed Peas
3. 'Release Me' - Agnes
4. 'Bonkers' - Dizzee Rascal
5. 'Red' - Daniel Merriweather
6. 'Knock You Down' - Keri Hilson/Kanye West/Ne-Yo
7. 'When Love Takes Over' - David Guetta/Kelly Rowland
8. 'Fire' - Kasabian
9. 'Untouched' - Veronicas
10. 'Kiss Me Thru The Phone' - Soulja Boy Tellem Ft Sammie


The Top 10 albums are:
1. 'West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum' - Kasabian
2. 'Sunny Side Up' - Paolo Nutini
3. 'The End' - Black Eyed Peas
4. 'Love & War' - Danial Merriweather
5. 'Hands' - Little Boots
6. 'Relapse' - Eminem
7. 'Greatest Hits' - Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band
