Girls Aloud have ended Robbie Williams' reign at the top of the UK album chart after just one week.

Girls Aloud's Greatest Hits has gone straight in at number one, pushing Robbie's Rudebox down to number two.

Soul siren Amy Winehouse's Back To Black has gone in at three, while rock legends The Who have an entry at nine.

On the singles rundown, Fedde le Grand has moved up a place to number one while last week's chart-toppers McFly have plummeted to number nine.

Bodyrox are at number two, with Girls Aloud, Beyonce and My Chemical Romance all sticking in the top five.

A collaboration between U2 and Green Day - a cover of 1970s punk group The Skids' The Saints Are Coming - is the highest new entry at number six.

The song has been released to raise money for U2 guitarist The Edge's charity Music Rising, which helps replace instruments lost in Hurricane Katrina.

All Saints' comeback single Rock Steady has landed at number 11, while a cover of The Clash classic Janie Jones by Babyshambles and Friends is a new entry at 17.

Another charity release, it is raising funds for the Strummerville Foundation, which was launched in memory of the late Clash frontman Joe Strummer.
