  New UK album sales high in 2003
Updated 13 January 2004, 15.42
Dido
A report says more albums were sold in the UK in 2003 than ever before.

121 million artist albums - which means no compilations - were sold, 7.6% up on the year before. With 2.1 million copies sold, Dido was the top seller.

Justin Timberlake's Justified came in second, followed by Christina Aguilera's Stripped.

Black Eyed Peas were the top singles sellers with 848,000 copies of Where is the Love? and Shut Up. But there was bad news, as singles sales fell by 30%.

Will Young sold the most singles in 2002, shifting a whopping 2,520,000 copies.

And from the top 200 singles, 26 of them were by winners, runers-up, or losers of reality TV pop shows including the Cheeky Girls and David Sneddon.
