Newlywed Cheryl Cole has double reason to celebrate after achieving her ninth number one single.

The former Girls Aloud star's new track, Crazy Stupid Love, featuring Tinie Tempah, went straight to the top of the charts.

The track is the singer's fourth number one as a solo artist, placing her alongside Geri Halliwell and Rita Ora as only the third British female to claim the feat.

Cole, who tied the knot with French restaurateur Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini in a secret ceremony in Mustique earlier this month, said: "It feels great to be back but even more special to have achieved my fourth number one. So exciting!"

Canadian reggae-infusion band Magic! were at number two after climbing up from number 50 last week, followed by former X Factor contestant Ella Henderson with Ghost, who was up one place to number three.

George Ezra's Budapest is also up one spot to number four, while Ariana Grande's Problem featuring Iggy Azalea slid three places to five.

With over 1.2 million hits, the song is the most streamed track of the week, while four others have also been streamed over a million times; Magic!'s Rude (1.17 million), Ezra's Budapest (1.13 million), Ed Sheeran's Sing (1.08 million) and Henderson's Ghost (1.06 million).

Meanwhile, singer-songwriter Sheeran's X remains at number one in the albums chart for a fifth consecutive week.

It makes it the longest run since Adele's 21 and the record has sold more than 400,000 copies in the UK to date.

Dolly Parton's Blue Smoke - The Best Of was in second place followed by Sam Smith's In The Lonely Hour at three, while Wanted On Voyage by George Ezra also climbed one place to number four and Coldplay's Ghost Stories was up three places to number five.

Other new entries include La Roux at number six with second album Trouble In Paradise.

Two veteran acts also made their debuts in the top 40 albums chart: v eteran singer and guitarist Richard Thomas was at number 16 with Acoustic Classics, and progressive rockers Yes hit number 20 with Heaven & Earth.

Scottish singer-songwriter King Creosote scored his first top 40 album with From Scotland With Love at number 21, while fellow countryman Biffy Clyro entered at 28 with B-sides album, Similarities.
