Justin Bieber looks set to beat himself to number one on this week's UK Official Singles Chart.

Love Yourself, a track from his latest album Purpose, has taken the top spot - pushing Sorry down to second position.

The midweek top five also features the 21-year-old Canadian pop star's hit single What Do You Mean, at number four.

A fortnight ago, Bieber beat a record held by John Lennon for 34 years, becoming the first male artist to have three entries in the top five since January 1981.
