Maroon 5 have scooped their first UK Number 1 with their new single 'Payphone'.

The track, which also features rapper Wiz Khalifa, has given the US pop rockers their highest chart position here in the UK, and knocks Cheryl's 'Call My Name' down a slot to Number 2, reports the Official Charts Company.

Their previous highest charting singles were 2007’s 'Makes Me Wonder' and 2011’s 'Moves Like Jagger', which both charted at Number Two respectively. The latter became the second biggest selling single of 2011 despite never quite reaching the top spot.

Flo Rida's 'Whistle' is a non-mover at Number Three, 'Black Heart' by Stooshe is new in at Number Four and Coldplay and Rihanna's collaboration 'Princess Of China' has dropped one spot to Number Five in the UK Singles Chart. Katy Perry's 'Wide Awake' is this week's highest climber, up 19 places from 31 to 20, while Justin Bieber's 'Boyfriend' re-enters the Top 40, climbing 11 places to Number 31.

Meanwhile, in the UK Album Chart, Justin Bieber holds off Cheryl to secure his first ever Number One UK Album with 'Believe'. According to Official Charts Company figures, Bieber outsold Cheryl's 'A Million Lights' by just 3,000 copies. This has denied Cheryl her third UK Number One album.

Paloma Faith's 'Fall To Grace' jumps two places to Number Three, Emeli Sande's 'Our Version Of Events' climbs to Number Four while Amy MacDonald's 'Life In Beautiful Light' falls to Number Five.

Elsewhere in the UK Album Chart, American Idol contestant Carrie Underwood gets her first UK Top 40 with 'Blown Away' (Number 11) and Reverend And The Makers' reach Number 16 with their third album, the Twitter inspired '@Reverend_Makers'.
