Elvis scores half century of hits

Elvis Presley has become the first act to score 50 top 10 UK albums.

The Nation's Favourite Elvis Songs, an accompaniment to the ITV programme of the same name which aired on Friday, shot into the UK album charts at number seven.

It is the king of rock 'n' roll's 50th album to break the UK top 10.

The Nation's Favourite Elvis Songs features all 20 tracks included on the programme - which was watched by more than four million viewers - including the number one favourite Elvis track, as voted by the public, Always On My Mind.

The album features some of the biggest hits and finest songs ever recorded and performed, spanning Elvis's entire career.

They include Suspicious Minds, Love Me Tender, Blue Suede Shoes, The Wonder Of You and Heartbreak Hotel.

During his career, Elvis recorded more than 600 songs - although he did not write a single one of them.

He has also sold more than a billion records.
