Rihanna has returned to Number One in the Official UK Album chart with 'Talk That Talk'.

The singer, who was Number Four in Wednesday's Official Album chart update, has leapfrogged early leader Plan B's 'iLL Manors' to reclaim the UK Number One Album spot.

Since its release last November, 'Talk That Talk' has spent an impressive 38 weeks inside the Top 40 and is on course to break the million album sales in the coming weeks. However, this is only its second week at the top, according to the Official Charts Company.

Plan B has been forced to settle for silver, as 'iLL Manors' holds firm at Number Two. Maroon 5's 'Overexposed' is up one place to Number Three, Emeli Sande drops one place to Number Four with 'Our Version Of Events' while Paloma Faith's 'Fall To Grace' climbs 11 places to Number Five.

Elsewhere in the UK Album Chart, 'Chariots Of Fire' composer Vangelis' 'The Collection' is this week's highest climber, climbing 17 places to Number 29 while 'Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds' has climbed 12 places to Number 22.

In the singles chart, Wiley's 'Heatwave' is Number One for a second week in a row, with Calvin Halvin Harris and Example's 'We'll Be Coming Be Back' at Number Two, boyband Lawson is new at Number Three with 'Taking Over Me', Florence And The Machine's 'Spectrum' at Number Four and Redlight also new at Number Five with 'Lost In Your Love'.

Dizzee Rascal and Pepper's 'Scream' is new in at Number 22, while Icelandic indie-folk group Of Monsters And Men score their first ever Top 40 track with 'Little Talks' at Number 28.
