Scottish singer Paolo Nutini has seen his new album Sunny-Side Up go straight to number one in the UK charts.

Australian artist Daniel Merriweather took the number two spot with his new release, Love & War, while Eminem's Relapse fell from one to three.

The first winner of Britain's Got Talent, Paul Potts, entered the album chart at five with Passione.

The Black Eyed Peas returned to the number one spot in the singles chart with Boom Boom Pow.

They pushed Dizzee Rascal down to number two with Bonkers, while the only new entry in the top 10 was Kasabian's Fire at number three.

Lady GaGa's former number one Poker Face is proving to have staying power, rising back up one place to 12, having been in the charts for 21 weeks.

Escala, Britain's Got Talent finalists from the second series, fell two places to number four with their self-titled album.

The only other new entries in the album top 20 came from Diana Krall's Quiet Nights at number 11 and Eels with Hombro Lobo at 18.
