Take That - Robbie Williams Back At Number One In U.k.

Former Take That star Robbie Williams has scored his first U.K. number one single in eight years.

Candy topped the pop chart on Sunday (04Nov12), becoming the fastest-selling single by a male artist this year (12) in the process.

It's Angels singer Williams' 14th number one - his seventh as a solo artist - which ties him with former bandmate Gary Barlow, who co-wrote the tune.

The hit topples Labrinth and Emeli Sande's Beneath Your Beautiful, but the Scottish singer won't be too glum - she was the toast of Britain's Music Of Black Origin (Mobo) Awards in Liverpool, England on Saturday night (03Nov12), taking home a trio of trophies for Best Album (Our Version of Events), Best Female and Best R&B/Soul Artist.

On the U.K. albums chart, Dj/producer Calvin Harris' 18 Months beat Kylie Minogue's The Abbey Road Sessions to the top spot.
