Leona Runs to number one success

Leona Lewis

Leona Lewis is celebrating her third number one single, for a track she never intended to release at all!

The former X Factor champ's version of Snow Patrol tune Run knocked Take That from the top spot after selling a massive 131,593 copies.

The single was only released when fans demanded it, and is only available to buy as a single online.

But there was still some good news for Take That, as their new album became one of the biggest selling ever.

The Circus has sold 432,000 copies since it was released on Monday. Only two other albums have ever sold more in their first week in the shops.

The Take That boys said in a statement: "We set out to make a record that each of us was really proud of and we did that.

"To then have it fly off the shelves like it did this week has been just amazing."
