Sam Smith has knocked Royal Blood off the top of the Official Albums Chart.

The singer reclaims the top spot this week with his debut album 'In The Lonely Hour' as the Brighton duo's self-titled debut slips to Number Two.

Cambridge rock band Lonely The Brave follow in Royal Blood's footsteps, as they enter the Top 20 with their first album 'The Day's War', which lands at Number 14. Elsewhere, Leeds quartet Pulled Apart By Horses score their first Top 40 album with their third release, 'Blood', which is at Number 38 this week.

In the Official Singles Chart, Lilly Wood and Robin Schulz continue their reign at Number One with 'Prayer In C', while producer Duke Dumont's 'Won't Look Back' climbs from Number 169 to Number Two. 'Black Widow', Iggy Azalea's collaboration with Rita Ora, is at Number Four and Sam Smith's single 'I'm Not The Only One' is at Number Five.

Meanwhile, US girl band GRL have entered the charts at Number 11 with their song 'Ugly Heart', following the death of member Simone Battle.
