Robbie Williams is set to be Number One on both the Official Singles Chart and the Official Albums Chart this weekend (November 7).

The former Take That singer is currently at the top of both charts with album 'Take The Crown' and single 'Candy' both outselling their nearest rivals, according to the Official Charts Company.

'Candy' last week topped the singles chart, becoming the third fastest selling single of 2012 after its release on October 28. Williams also recently admitted that the song sounds a lot like the music used in the TV adverts for Haribo sweets.

The Wanted are poised to score this week’s highest new entry with 'I Found You' at Number Three. Misha B, Rita Ora and Sub Focus are also on track to enter the Top 10. Other new entries are due from Christina Aguilera and Sneakbo.

Aside from 'Take The Crown', the Official Album Chart has nine new entries in the midweeks with Andre Rieu at Number 2 and JLS' new album 'Evolution' at 3. Other new entries come from The Military Wives, Chris Moyles, Aerosmith, Andrea Bocelli, Ne-Yo and Kristina Train. The reissue of Manic Street Preachers' 1992 debut 'Generation Terrorists' is at Number 30.

The Official Singles and Albums Chart will be announced this Sunday (November 11).
