Pop sensation Jess Glynne held on to number one in the singles chart after fighting off strong challenges from Nick Jonas and The Voice UK winner Stevie McCrorie.

London girl Glynne continues her wonder year after winning a Grammy for best dance recording in February for her collaboration with Clean Bandit on mega hit Rather Be.

The 25-year-old r edhead singer-songwriter's Hold My Hand retained the crown for a third week with almost 5,000 charts sales more than Jonas's debut solo single Jealous.

McCrorie was in the lead midweek with his version of Adam Levine's Lost Stars but in the end the Scottish firefighter had to settle for sixth.

It makes him the highest charting artist so far from The Voice UK, which he won last Saturday after being mentored by Ricky Wilson.

The top five was completed by former number one King by Years and Years in third place, BRITs Critics' Choice winner James Bay's Hold Back The River at number four and Ed Sheeran's Bloodstream in fifth.

In the albums chart US pop-punk band All Time Low clinched their first UK chart-topper with sixth album Future Hearts.

The Baltimore band said: "This is a huge surprise. We didn't expect this kind of reaction to the album and we couldn't be happier.

"After so many years together, we never want to let our fans down, and this feels like a massive achievement on their part as much as ours."

The Americans came in just ahead of James Bay's Chaos And The Calm at number two, Ed Sheeran's x in third, and Sam Smith's debut In The Lonely Hour at number four.

Last week's Number 1 from The Prodigy, The Day Is My Enemy, fell four places to complete this week's top five.
