Take That scooped two Brit Awards at this year's ceremony
Take That's Beautiful World Live DVD has become the fastest selling music DVD in UK history, according to their record company Polydor.

The recording of the group's European tour went straight to number one in the UK music DVD charts after shifting more than 64,000 copies in one week.

Celine Dion's Live In Las Vegas was second, selling 1,600 copies.

Take That's DVD also outsold the number one album this week, Amy Winehouse's Back To Black.

According to Polydor, this is the first time a music DVD has managed to outsell the top album.

Since Gary Barlow, Mark Owen, Jason Orange and Howard Donald reunited in 2005 after a decade apart, they have gone from strength to strength.

In 2006, the group topped the UK singles and album charts. Their track Shine, which went to number one in February 2007, won them best single at the Brit Awards.

They also won best British live act at last month's ceremony.
