Dance pop artist Calvin Harris has gone straight to the top of the single charts with new song I'm Not Alone.

The Scottish singer - whose song with rapper Dizzee Rascal, Dance Wiv Me, went to number one last year - knocked Lady GaGa off the top spot.

But Lady GaGa stayed top of the album chart for a second week with The Fame.

It was recorded by a number of Liverpudlian musicians and former Liverpool FC footballers and is credited to the Liverpool Collective featuring the Kop Choir.

Elsewhere in the chart, R&B singer Ciara was a new entry at number six with her song Love Sex Magic, featuring Justin Timberlake.
