Michael Bublé reclaims albums No.1 with ‘Christmas’

Michael Bublé has returned to the peak of the UK album chart with his Christmas LP.

The Canadian singer’s festive opus switched positions with last week’s number one Lioness: Hidden Treasures by the late Amy Winehouse after achieving the biggest weekly sales of any album this year, with a total of over 269,000 copies.

Colplay’s Mylo Xyloto boosts five places to three following an 113% week-on-week sales increase sparked by their performance on last Sunday’s X Factor final.

All of this week’s top six, which also comprises of In Case You Didn’t Know by Olly Murs, Talk That Talk by Rihanna and Adele’s 21, shifted over 100,000 copies in the last seven days.

Elsewhere, X Factor 2010 runner-up Rebecca Ferguson dips four to seven with her debut album Heaven, Westlife sneak back into the Top 10 with their Greatest Hits record, which is up two to nine, and Bruno Mars drops back out of the top-sellers after falling one place to 11.

The Top 10 in full:
1. (2) Michael Bublé: ‘Christmas’
2. (1) Amy Winehouse: ‘Lioness: Hidden Treasures’
3. (8) Coldplay: ‘Mylo Xyloto’
4. (4) Olly Murs: ‘In Case You Didn’t Know’

Also making small shifts in the chart this week are Susan Boyle’s Someone To Watch Over Me, Jessie J’s Who You Are, Alfie Boe’s Alfie LP and Fallen Empires by Snow Patrol. The former two rise one apiece to 15 and 19 respectively, while Boe and Snow Patrol drop the same number to 16 and 20.

Bublé makes a second appearance in the chart with his 2009 album Crazy Love, up ten to 23, while the Bee Gees also rocket up the listings with their Number Ones collection, which is at 24 from last week’s 40.
