Britain's Got Talent star Calum Scott has scored his first hit single in today's chart.

The singer made it through to the final of last year's show having been backed by Simon Cowell as the music mogul's golden buzzer act.

Calum performed a cover of Robyn's Dancing On My Own at his audition with Simon saying at the time: "It was amazing, I really mean that, well done.

"I've never, ever in all the years I've done this show heard a guy with the talent you've got. The version was sensational, you're more than a singer, you're an artist and that's why you got that [the golden buzzer]."

Calum released his version of the track back in March but it only began to climb the charts earlier this week.

The song peaked in the Top 10 on iTunes and remains in the Top 20 at the time of writing.

This evening Calum scored the final spot in the Top 40 having rocketed more than 150 places up the charts in the past seven days.

Elsewhere in tonight's charts, X Factor winners Little Mix have scored a new peak with Hair, climbing to Number 31 thanks to a new version with Sean Paul.

Their album Get Weird is also on the up, rising seven places to Number 8 for a total of 18 weeks in the top 10.
