Jess Glynne has claimed a second week at number one on the official singles chart with Hold My Hand.

The singer-songwriter ousted midweek leaders Ed Sheeran and Rudimental to extend her reign at the top with combined chart sales of just over 80,000, including 1.62 million streams, the Official Charts Company said.

Sheeran's Bloodstream climbed 24 places to number two, finishing 5,000 copies behind Glynne.

The song, which was reworked with London-based collective Rudimental for its single release, was streamed 1.28 million times this week.

James Bay's Hold Back The River takes third place, while Years & Years are at number four with King and claim this week's most streamed song with 1.96 million streams, while Mark Ronson's Uptown Funk is at number five.

New at number 19 is Dappy's Beautiful Me, marking the N-Dubz star's first appearance on the Top 40 in three years.

On the official albums chart, The Prodigy earned their sixth number one - straight in at the top with The Day Is My Enemy, their first studio album in six years.

Last week's number one Chaos And The Calm by James Bay is at two, and Sam Smith's In The Lonely Hour is at three.

Sheeran's X is down a place to number four this week, and rounding off the top five is Sia, who jumps 19 places to five with 1000 Forms Of Fear.
