Justin Bieber has knocked Adele's 'Hello' from its perch to claim this week's number one single, and match John Lennon's chart record in the process.
Unbelievably, every single track from the singer's new album Purpose is in the Top 100. With eight of those tracks in the Top 40, Bieber's the only living artist to have achieved that number of simultaneous positions.
As well as 'Sorry' nabbing the top spot, Bieber's 'Love Yourself' and 'What Do You Mean' are both in the Top 5 at three and five respectively.
The 22-year-old is also the first artist to celebrate three singles in the Top 5 since John Lennon did so after his death 34 years ago, with 'Imagine', 'Happy Xmas' and '(Just Like) Starting Over'.
Elsewhere, Adele's 'Hello' is at two and Fleur East's 'Sax' drops a place to four.
Jess Glynne has earned her eighth Top 10 single with Children in Need track 'Take Me Home', while One Direction's 'Perfect' climbs six places to number ten.
