X-Factor winner Leona Lewis is celebrating the biggest selling song of the year after holding on to the top spot in the UK singles chart.

The 22-year-old's hit, Bleeding Love, saw off competition from Take That to stay at number one for a third week.

It's the second time Leona has released the biggest selling single of the year. The first was for her single A Moment Like This in 2006.

Bleeding Love sold 111,978 copies over the past seven days.

Westlife's single Home slipped from third to fifth place, with rap record Apologise, by Timbaland, and Mark Ronson's reworking of Valerie both moving up to third and fourth place respectively.

Sugababes' former number one hit About You Now remains at six, followed by Craig Davis's Hot Stuff (Let's Dance) which soared 12 places to seventh.

Britney Spears' Gimme More slipped a place to eight, while No One, by Alicia Keys, and the Freemasons' Uninvited complete the top ten.

In the album charts, Westlife's new release, Back Home, went straight in a number one with legendary 70s rockers The Eagles slipping to second place with Long Road out of Eden.

Whitney Houston's The Ultimate Collection climbed two spots to three, while McFly's Greatest Hits, a new entry, and Raising Sand by Robert Plant and Alison Krauss complete the top five.
