Little Mix enjoy a second week at Number 1 with Glory Days

Little Mix have scored a second week at Number 1 with their latest album.

The girls' fourth record Glory Days first topped the charts five years on from their victory on the show last weekend.

It was their first ever chart topping record: While their previous efforts have all sold well, they've frustratingly always just missed the top spot, ranking in at numbers, 2, 3 and 4.

But last Friday the four piece celebrated with Glory Days selling over 96,000 'copies' in its first week on sale.

An impressive number in its own right but even more impressive when you consider this: It was the highest first week sales for a UK girl group since Spice Girls' Spiceworld in 1997.

And worldwide, it was the biggest since Destiny’s Child’s Survivor in 2001, according to the Official Charts Company.

This week, Glory Days shifted a further 57,000 copies to certify it Gold for sales of over 100,000 at Number 1.

However it was a narrow victory with the four piece, just 2,000 copies ahead of closest rivals Michael Ball and Alfie Boe, whose album Together made Number 2.

The record has become the second-fastest selling so far this year, behind only the late David Bowie and his collection Blackstar.

Overall, Little Mix's Glory Days is The X Factor's 24rd chart topping album with the group knocking Olly Murs off the top spot after his Number 1 last month.
