Kylie Minogue secures United Kingdom number one album

Kylie Minogue has scored her seventh United Kingdom number one album with greatest hits record "Step Back in Time: The Definitive Collection".

The 51-year-old singer went straight to the top of the charts with Step Back in Time: The Definitive Collection.

When Minogue opened the door, she discovered her crew dancing away and joined in without knowing what she was celebrating - until she spotted the award and completely freaked out. Meanwhile, she's second only to Madonna for the title of female recording artists with the most #1 records in the United Kingdom, with the Madame X singer having racked up 12.

Before her performance, Kylie had admitted she was feeling "emotional" about appearing at the world famous event, but said she was expecting the festival to be a "big love fest".

The gap had narrowed slightly by Wednesday, but she still had enough of a comfortable lead to land the top spot tonight.

As expected, Jaguar Land Rover had a massive electrification announcement for its Castle Bromwich plant in the UK. However, Hams Hall will import cells for its batteries from Asia, in the absence of a major British manufacturer.

Lewis Capaldi's Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent falls to two, while The Black Keys' Let's Rock enters the chart at three.

Other artists are also enjoying a post-Glastonbury sales boost. The album Direct Hits by festival headliners The Killers rocketed 49 places to number 6.

Over on the singles chart, meanwhile, Ed Sheeran and Justin Bieber are number one for the eighth week running.

I Don't Care has held off Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello's Senorita once again, while Sheeran is again at No3 with Khalid duet Beautiful People - this week's highest new entry.
