Sweet Nothing tops singles chart

Calvin Harris and Florence Welch are topping the charts

Calvin Harris and Florence Welch have secured their second collaborative number one single in three months as Sweet Nothing topped the official UK singles chart.

The power couple have clinched the top spot with the track - taken from Calvin Harris's upcoming album 18 Months - exactly three months after their summer smash Spectrum was number one.

The duo knocked Swedish House Mafia off the top of the pile as their track Don't You Worry Child slipped to number two.

Adele's Bond theme, Skyfall, which went in at number two last week, fell to number five just days before the film's general release.

Meanwhile, Jake Bugg, Nottingham's much-hyped singer-songwriter has denied superstar Leona Lewis her third consecutive number one album by shooting straight to the top of the album chart.

The 18-year-old has seen affectionate endorsements from Chris Martin, Lily Allen and Noel Gallagher, with the latter having roped him in for an extensive US tour along with Snow Patrol.

Lewis was further pipped by Mumford & Sons, whose sophomore release Babel finishes the week at number two, just ahead of the X Factor winner's third album Glassheart at number three.

Another X Factor star making an appearance was Rebecca Ferguson as the deluxe version of her debut album Heaven went in at number five.

In a big comeback, Art Garfunkel scored his first solo top 10 in 32 years as new compilation The Singer entered the chart at number 10.

Leo:

You feel optimistic and for good reason. An admirer has been trying to win your heart. All this attention is flattering. If you're single, keep playing hard to get. The more you resist, the more they'll persist. Are you already in a relationship? Start pursuing a cherished dream. Fulfilling your heart's desire will make you a better partner and friend. Dwelling on what might have been will just make you bitter. Take a risk. It's better to try and fail than be paralysed by fear.More
