Blunt's Back To Bedlam Is Decade's Best-seller

JAMES BLUNT will have an extra reason to celebrate this New Year (10) - his album BACK TO BEDLAM has been named Britain's best-selling record of the last decade.
The singer/songwriter's debut saw off competition from Dido, whose disc No Angel came in second place and who also made the Top 10 with her album Life For Rent, according to the U.K. list compiled by the Official Charts Company.
Amy Winehouse's Back To Black came third, followed by The X Factor winner Leona Lewis' 2007 album Spirit and David Gray's White Ladder, with the Beatles' compilation 1 placed sixth.
Meanwhile, the Beatles' 1 album was the bestseller in the U.S. over the last ten years - making the Fab Four the only British band to land in the American top 10.
Boy band 'NSYNC scored the second place spot in the U.S. with their album No Strings Attached, topping Norah Jones' third place entry Come Away With Me.
Rapper Eminem rounded out the top five with two bestsellers - 2000's The Marshall Mathers LP was fourth, while The Eminem Show came fifth.
