X Factor's Cher set for number one

Cher Lloyd is on course to get the top spot with her debut single.

Latest sales figures suggest the X Factor reject will beat JLS, who lost out in the 2008 series of the hit ITV1 show, to number one this weekend.

Figures from the Official Charts Company put her single, Swagger Jagger, well ahead of the boy band's She Makes Me Wanna.

The teenager, from Malvern, Worcestershire, got down to the final four in last year's competition.

Amy Winehouse continues to dominate the album charts with her debut, Frank, and its follow-up, Back To Black, both in the top five with the latter expected to be number one.

The singer, found dead in her north London home last month, is also on course to have six singles in the top 75.
