A record breaking top five coming up as all five singles break the 600 point mark, with the whole of the top four breaking the previous record for biggest weekly tally of 658 set two weeks ago by Queen & David Bowie.

But who has claimed the new record at #1 this week?

Queen & Bowie's time at the top may be coming to an end, slumping on three of our charts this week, but they top no less than FOUR others, certify SILVER, remain on top for a third week and smash the 700-point barrier for the highest ever weekly tally!
