Proving that Britain is a nation of dog-lovers, Marley and Me has shot to number one at the UK box office.

After one weekend on release the film, starring Jennifer Aniston, Owen Wilson and a cute but naughty Labrador puppy, made £4.4 million.

It success pushed superhero epic Watchmen into second place.

Clint Eastwood-starring Gran Torino remained at third place, with multiple Oscar-winner Slumdog Millionaire and new release The Young Victoria completinig the top five.
