X Factor winner Shayne Ward has debuted at the top of the album charts.
Ward said he was "thrilled" by the album's chart-topping success
The winner of the ITV1 talent show, whose debut single scooped the coveted Christmas number one spot, said it had been "an unbelievable six months".
"I still can't believe this is real. I'd like to thank all the fans for supporting me - without you all, I wouldn't be here today," said Ward.
Crazy, by Gnarls Barkley, held on to the number one spot in the singles chart for the fourth week in a row.
Ward held off a challenge by indie rockers The Zutons, whose latest album, Tired Of Hanging Around, entered the charts in second place.
The 21-year-old Mancunian's self-titled album has sold more than 201,000 copies since its release.
