Miley Cyrus is on course to be Number One in both the Official Albums and Singles Chart this weekend, with her album 'Bangerz' and its second single 'Wrecking Ball' both selling well.

Official Chart Company data reveals that the US popstar is ahead of her nearest competition in both charts and, should she stay at the top, will become the first artist to score a chart double in 2013. The winner of this week's chart battle will be revealed on BBC Radio 1 this Sunday (October 13).
