X Factor's James Arthur and Little Mix get number 1 - but where's Louisa Johnson?


X Factor acts are on top of both the album and singles charts this week.

James Arthur's new album has followed his recent chart topping single as his comeback shows no signs of slowing down.

James' Number 1 single Say You Won't Let Go spent three weeks at Number 1 earlier this month and now album Back From The Edge has copied its success.

According to the Official Charts Company, the album was this week's biggest seller with 41,000 copies shifted and is the Official Number 1 record of the week.

And it's James first number 1 album ever; his X Factor debut charted at Number 2 back in 2013.

James told the Official Charts Company: "To have a body of work go to Number 1.... it's the ultimate sense of achievement. Thank you so much to everyone who has brought it."

Little Mix spend a third week at Number 1

Over in the singles chart and Little Mix's reign on top has continued.

After knocking James off the top spot, Shout Out To My Ex has stayed in pole position for a third week running.

The girls continue to lead James who remains at Number 2 with Say You Won't Let Go.

Despite other X Factor acts dominating the top of both the single and albums charts, latest winner Louisa Johnson isn't replicating the success just yet.


Her new song So Good debuts in the singles chart this evening, the highest new entry of the week.

Louisa performed the song on The X Factor live shows at the weekend after revealing her debut album won't be out until 2017.
