Leona Lewis's number one song Bleeding Love has become the biggest-selling single of the year so far.

According to an Official Charts Company release, the X Factor winner's ballad has outsold the previous best-seller - Mika's Grace Kelly - by 10,000 copies.

The 22-year-old fought off competition from Take That on Sunday to remain at number one for a third week running.

Timbaland's track Apologise moved up to three, while Mark Ronson's song Valerie moved up to fourth place.

Lewis's debut song, A Moment Like This, was the second-biggest seller of 2006 when it became the Christmas number one.
