Noel Gallagher is set to go straight in at Number One in the UK albums chart on Sunday (October 23) with his solo debut 'Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds'.

The singer is presently well ahead of X Factor winner Matt Cardle, who is at Number Two with his debut album 'Letters'.

Last week's chart topper Steps are set to fall to Number Three with their 'Ultimate Collection', while Adele is at Number Four and Ed Sheeran at Number Five.

M83 and Jane's Addiction look to enter in the lower reaches of the top 40, with their new LPs at number 34 and 37 respectively.

In the singles chart, The Wanted look set to end Rihanna's two-week reign at the top, with their new track 'Lightning' set to go straight in at Number One, ahead of Rihanna's 'We Found Love'.

There are two high profile entries in the Top 10, with Kelly Clarkson's new track 'Mr Know It All' set to enter at Number Five and Lana Del Ray currently set to be Number Six with 'Video Games'.

Justin Bieber is also on to return to the charts, with his new single 'Mistletoe', the first to be taken from his new Christmas album 'Under The Mistletoe', currently heading for the Number 13 spot.
