Pop star Lady Gaga is back at the top of the UK album chart for the fourth time with her debut release, The Fame.

The album, which came out in January 2009, made its first appearance at the summit exactly a year ago. It has spent a total of 48 weeks in the top 10.

Her return to number one pushes last week's chart-toppers, Boyzone, down to number two.

In the singles chart, Scouting For Girls score a second week at number one with This Ain't A Love Song.

Usher's single OMG climbs six places to land at number two, while Plan B's She Said holds steady at three.

The highest new entry comes from sensitive balladeer Joshua Radin, who lands at number 11 with I'd Rather Be With You.

It is the US star's first hit in the UK, helped in no small part by a video starring Heroes actress Hayden Panettiere.

There are only two other new entries in the top 40 - Paramore's The Only Exception at 33, and Taio Cruz's Dirty Picture at 40.

Florence And The Machine hold three places in the chart, led by her duet with Dizzee Rascal, You Got The Dirtee Love, at 18.

The album chart is largely static, with Mancunian rock trio Doves scoring the highest new entry at 11, with their Best Of collection.

Go, the first solo record by Sigur Ros frontman Jonsi, debuts at 20, with other new entries from Rufus Wainwright at 21 and former Guns N' Roses guitar hero Slash at 30.

Meanwhile, low prices in the Easter sales have helped older records back into the chart - including Whitney Houston's Ultimate Collection and Paolo Nutini's debut, These Streets.
