Pitbull and Ke$ha’s ‘Timber’ has felled Pharrell Williams’ ‘Happy’ from the Official UK Singles Chart top spot.

The track is the first Official UK Singles Chart Number One of 2014, according to the Official Charts Company, and comes just 24hours after Ke$ha revealed that she was checking herself into rehab to help herself combat an eating disorder.

In a statement posted on the ‘Tik-Tok’ singer’s official Facebook page yesterday (January 4), she said: “I'm a crusader for being yourself and loving yourself but I've found it hard to practice. I’ll be unavailable for the next 30 days, seeking treatment for my eating disorder ... to learn to love myself again. Exactly as I am.”

Pharrell Williams’ ‘Happy’ is at Number Two, Avicii’s ‘Hey Brother’ is at Number Three and Jason Derulo is at Number Four with ‘Trumpets’. This week’s Top 5 is completed by Ellie Goulding’s ‘How Long Will I Love You’, which is up two spaces from Number Seven.

In the Official Albums Chart, Ellie Goulding is celebrating a massive start to the year as her 2012 album, ‘Halcyon’, has finally hit the Number One spot after a steady 65 weeks in the chart.

Gary Barlow’s ‘Since I Saw You Last’ holds onto the Number Two spot, Beyonce’s self-titled album is at Number Three, and Robbie Williams ‘Swings Both Ways’ drops three places to Number Four and ‘Tribute’ by John Newman is this week’s Number Five.

Elsewhere, Rudimental’s ‘Home’ and Haim’s ‘Days Are Gone’ are up 27 places to Number Seven and Number 13, respectively, while Kodaline’s ‘In A Perfect World’ has climbed 25 places to re-enter the Top 40 at Number 40.
