British singer Example has entered the chart at number one this week, with Adele‘s ‘21‘ climbing again from #4 to #2.

A remastered edition of The Beatles‘ ‘1‘, a collection of the Fab Four’s number one singles which was one of the biggest sellers of the last decade, entered at #6, while Bombay Bicycle Club‘s ‘A Different Kind Of Fix‘, last week’s no.6, has plummeted to #17.

Elsewhere, PJ Harvey‘s recent Mercury Music Prize win hasn’t done enough to push ‘Let England Shake‘ into the Top 20, but it does re-enter the chart at #24.
