The song title may imply a certain nonchalance but pop star Cheryl will be cracking open the champagne after becoming the first British female solo artist to have five number one singles.

Her latest song, I Don't Care, went straight into the charts at the top spot. The 31-year-old, who also had four number ones as part of Girls Aloud, eclipsed fellow former girl-band songstress Geri Halliwell and Rita Ora, who have both had four singles reach the top spot.

But the X Factor judge has a long way to go to claim the ladies' crown outright - queen of pop Madonna is way out in front with 13 UK number ones.

I Don't Care is the second single from Cheryl's fourth album, Only Human, out tomorrow.
