Sun Shines On Take That

by | 05 March 2007

Any aspirations comeback kids Take That may have of sticking around for just that bit longer have been helped by their single Shine climbing to the top of the UK chart.

Fresh from last month's Brit awards success; the Manchester foursome's second single release from album Beautiful World displaces Ruby by the Kaiser Chiefs at number one.

But the Kaisers can at least take comfort from their blockbusting new album Yours Truly Angry Mob debuting at number one, which kicks Amy Winehouse's Back to Black into third.

Different as they are, the charts are dominated by Take That and the Kaisers, with the reformed boyband occupying second place in the album chart with the aforementioned Beautiful World.

Back in the singles stakes The Sweet Escape by Gwen Stefani featuring Akon rises four places to three, while former number one Grace Kelly by Mika and Fray's How to Save a Life complete the top five.
