Robbie Williams has scored a chart double as his new album 'Take The Crown' and current single 'Candy' occupy the Number One spots.

Last week, the Take That singer's new single entered at the top of the Official UK Single Chart. He has held on to that spot and has added to his chart success with his new album 'Take The Crown' taking Number One in the Official UK Album Chart, reports the Official Charts Company.

The last time he had similar success was back in December 2001 when he had a Number One single with 'Something Stupid', his cover of Carson and Gaile's 1967 track featuring Nicole Kidman, and a Number One album with 'Swing When You're Winning'.

Elsewhere, Andre Rieu and Johann Strauss are at Number Two with 'Magic Moments', JLS' 'Evolution' is at Number Three, last week's chart-topper Calvin Harris is at Number Four with '18 Months' and Military Wives' Stronger Together completes this week's Top 5.

In the Official UK Singles Chart, Labrinth's collaboration with Emeli Sande, 'Beneath Your Beautiful' spends a second week at Number Two, The Wanted's 'I Found You' is at Number Three, Adele's 'Skyfall' climbs one place to Number Four and Swedish House Mafia are at Number Five with 'Don't You Worry Child'.

Meanwhile, former X Factor contestant Misha B scores her first Top 10 single with 'Do You Think Of Me', while Gabrielle Aplin's cover of Frankie Goes To Hollywood's 'The Power Of Love' enters at Number 36 after just over 24 hours on sale. The track features in the new John Lewis Christmas ad campaign.
