Robbie Williams has scored his first UK Number One single in eight years with 'Candy'.

The Take That singer has now drawn level with his bandmate Gary Barlow, who co-wrote the track, and Cliff Richard, to net his 14th Official UK Singles Chart Number One, according to the Official Charts Company.

Elsewhere, last week's UK Number One Single, Labrinth's 'Beneath Your Beautiful' featuring Emeli Sandi, is down one place to Number Two, while Wiley's 'Can You Hear Me? (Ayayaya) debuts in at Number Three. Swedish House Mafia are at Number Four with 'Don't You Worry Child' and Adele completes the Top Five with 'Skyfall'.

In the Official Album Chart, Calvin Harris secured his second UK Number One album with '18 Months', beating Kylie Minogue's 'Abbey Sessions', which debuted in at Number Two, to the top of the chart.

The album compiles Harris' best-known collaborations of the last year, including those with Rihanna and Dizze Rascal, with new album tracks, and includes an impressive six Official Singles Chart Top Three singles.

Emeli Sande's 'Our Version Of Events' is down one spot to Number Three, while FUN have climbed a massive 29 places in the chart following last weekend's X Factor appearance to land at Number Four, and last week's chart topper Taylor Swift is at Number Five with 'Red'.

Meanwhile, Alt-J have reaped the rewards for winning the Mercury Prize last week, as their debut album 'An Awesome Wave' received a week-on-week sales boost of 149% to shoot up fourteen places to Number 14, and give the band their highest weekly sales since the album was released.
