Singer Ed Sheeran returns to top of singles UK charts

By Sophie Jamieson

Ed Sheeran has regained the number one position in the official singles chart with his song Thinking Out Loud.

The track first topped the charts five weeks ago but since then had dropped to number four.

Thinking Out Loud has been in the Top 40 for 24 weeks. When it first reached the top position it claimed the record for the longest ascent to number one of any single in the Official Chart's history.

The song, from Sheeran's album x, overtook midweek leader Union J's You Got It All, which falls into second position. In the Official Albums Chart, Take That's III has become their sixth number one studio album.

With sales of nearly 145,000 in the last seven days, III finishes the week over 38,000 copies ahead of the number two album, Sheeran's x.
