X Factor winners Little Mix have gone straight to the Number One spot in the Official UK Singles Chart with their debut release 'Cannonball'.

According to information from the Official Charts Company, the girl band's cover of the Damien Rice track shifted over 210,000 copies, which is the biggest first week sale's figures for 2011, and outsold the rest of the Top Five put together.

The only other new entry into the Top 10 was Leona Lewis, who went in at Number Eight with her cover of the Nine Inch Nails track 'Hurt'.

In the Official UK Albums Chart, meanwhile, crooner Michael Bublé claimed the top spot with his festive LP 'Christmas'. His sales figures of over 269,000 are the biggest of any album released this year.

Coldplay, meanwhile, saw their week-by-week sales for 'Mylo Xyloto' increase by 113%, while Westlife's 'Greatest Hits' collection moved from its position of Number 11 next week to take the Number Nine spot. There were no new entries in this week's Top 10.
