Timberlake enjoys UK chart-topper
Justin Timberlake
A string of Timberlake's previous hits had stalled at number two
Justin Timberlake has scored his first solo UK number one single, knocking Beyonce and Jay-Z off the top.

The former boy band star has hit number one with Sexyback. Beyonce and Jay-Z's collaboration Deja Vu dropped to three after a reign of just one week.

The Scissor Sisters were the highest new entry at four from digital sales alone with I Don't Feel Like Dancin'.

Kasabian went straight in at the top of the albums chart, with Bob Dylan's Modern Times a new entry at three.
