White Lies have failed to knock Britain's Got Talent duo Richard & Adam off the top of the UK's Official Albums Chart this week.

The London trio were neck and neck with Richard & Adam in the midweek update but their new album 'Big TV' slipped to fourth position over the course of the week. Rudimental climb five places to Number Two with their debut LP 'Home', a former chart-topper, while Imagine Dragons hold steady in third with 'Night Visions'.

Richard & Adam's debut album 'The Impossible Dream' has now notched up three weeks in a row at Number One, tying Justin Timberlake's 'The 20/20 Experience' for most consecutive weeks spent on top this year.

Meanwhile, Ellie Goulding scores her first ever Number One on the UK's Official Singles Chart with 'Burn', which rockets to the top spot after being released last Sunday (August 11).

"It means the world to me to be Number One at the moment," the singer told OfficialCharts.com. "It was always my dream to have a UK Number One single, and it's been a long time coming! Thank you to everyone who bought 'Burn' and everyone who has supported me over the last three years."

Avicii's 'Wake Me Up' holds steady in second, while last week's chart-topper, 'We Can't Stop' by Miley Cyrus, slips to third and is followed by the Cedric Gervais remix of Lana Del Rey's 'Summertime Sadness' in fourth. Right behind, Lady Gaga's 'Applause', the first single to be taken from her forthcoming album 'ARTPOP', debuts at Number Five after a leak last weekend forced an early release.

Meanwhile, Arctic Monkeys enter at Number Eight with 'Why'd You Only Call Me When You're High?', the third single to be taken from their eagerly-anticipated 'AM' album, which is due out on September 9. It becomes the band's first Top Ten hit on the UK's Official Singles Chart since 'Fluorescent Adolescent' in 2007 and sixth in total.
