Cilla song climbing up the charts

Sheridan Smith's portrayal of Cilla Black in the ITV biopic has propelled the scouse singer back towards the top 40.

The show has pulled in more than seven million viewers and Cilla's 1964 number one, Anyone Who Had A Heart, is at number 46 in the midweek charts and looks set to climb further according to sales figures from the Official Charts Company.

The track, performed by Sheridan in the show, was written by legendary songwriting duo Bacharach and David and was originally a hit for Dionne Warwick.

Top spot looks like it will go to the the trio of Jessie J, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj with their collaboration on Bang Bang pushing Sigma and Paloma Faith down to second place with Changing.

Taylor Swift's Shake It Off is up two places to number three with Calvin Harris and John Newman's Blame and Lilly Wood and Robin Schulz's Prayer In C make up the rest of the top five.

A lt-J could get top spot in the album chart with This Is All Yours - their follow up to the 2012 Mercury Prize winning An Awesome Wave.
