Miley Cyrus has bagged her first ever Official UK Number One single with 'We Can't Stop'.

The 20-year-old US singer's track has entered in straight at the top, ending Avicii's three-week reign with 'Wake Me Up' (2). Cyrus' previous best chart placing was 2009's 'Party In The USA', which reached Number 11, reports the Official Charts Company.

Tinie Tempah is new in at Number Three with 'Trampoline', the rapper's first single from his second studio album 'Demonstation'. Cedric Gervais remix of Lana Del Rey’s 'Summertime Sadness' holds the Number Four spot, and Robin Thicke's 'Blurred Lines' completes this week's Top 5.

Elsewhere, Justin Timberlake's latest single 'Take Back The Night' climbs 30 places to Number 29, while Kings Of Leon are new in at Number 31 with 'Wait For Me', the band's latest offering from forthcoming new album 'Mechanical Bull'.

In the Official UK Album Chart, Richard and Adam spend a second week at the top with 'The Impossible Dream'. Britain's Got Talent finalists held off Grammy-winning duo The Civil War's new self-titled album (2) by 15,000 copies.

Imagine Dragons jump seven places to Number Three with 'Night Visions', Passenger's 'All The Little Lights' is at Number Four and Jahmene Douglas' 'Love Never Fails' is at Number Five.

Other new entries in today's Official Albums Chart include Example's greatest hits collection, '#Hits', which is at Number 11, and Birmingham band Swim Deep's debut album 'Where The Heaven Are We?', which enters in at Number 20.
