Robbie Williams scores tenth No.1 album

Robbie Williams has scored his tenth UK number one album with Take the Crown.

Emeli Sandé falls three with 2012’s best-seller so far Our Version of Events to six. Kylie Minogue dips five spots to seven with The Abbey Road Sessions.

Paloma Faith climbs a place to eight with Fall to Grace, with Mumford & Sons dipping two to nine with Babel.

Andrea Bocelli’s latest compilation Opera is new at ten, while former BBC Radio 1 DJ Chris Moyles enters at 13 with The Difficult Second Album.
