Teenage soul star Joss Stone has topped the UK album charts with her second album, Mind, Body & Soul.

The 17-year-old Mercury Music Prize nominee from Devon knocked Green Day's American Idiot off the top spot.

Other new entries in the chart included Marilyn Manson's Best Of... , Tom Jones & Jools Holland's collaboration and The Best of Groove Armada.

In the singles charts, Ronan Keating failed to unseat Swedish DJ Eric Prydz and his top-selling single Call On Me.

It is the third week at number one for Prydz's catchy dance anthem.

Keating's latest track, I Hope You Dance, secured the number two spot in the UK singles charts, ahead of Washington DC duo Deep Dish and their track Flashdance.

US rock band REM hit the charts at number five, beaten by Pieces of Me, the debut single from Ashlee Simpson - sibling of US pop star Jessica.

Meanwhile, Blinded By The Lights, the latest single to be released from The Streets' album A Grand Don't Come For Free, barely scraped into the top ten.

Joss Stone recently recorded a Christmas duet with legendary Rolling Stone frontman Mick Jagger, and also sings the title song in the forthcoming remake of the 1960s film, Alfie.

The remake, featuring Jude Law as the eponymous Alfie, as well as Susan Sarandon and Marisa Tomei , is due out in the UK on 22 October.
