Adele has regained pole position on the UK singles chart with ‘Someone Like You’.

The 21 star scored a fifth week at number one after knocking previous chart-topper Nicole Scherzinger and her track ‘Don’t Hold Your Breath’ down to two.

Third place this week belongs to ‘Just Can’t Get Enough’ by The Black Eyed Peas, which gains a hefty 12 spots from last Sunday, while The Wanted’s ‘Gold Forever’ and Jessie J’s ‘Price Tag’ complete the top five.

Adele’s debut release ‘Rolling In The Deep’ also continues to hang within the single digits at nine, as Lady GaGa rounds out a largely unchanged top ten with ‘Born This Way’, down three from last week’s seven.
