LONDON, UK (Top40 Charts/ Murray Chalmers PR) Olly Murs is number one in the UK album chart with his second album 'In Case You Didn't Know'. The album sold more than 148k copies in its first week, making Olly the biggest selling male solo artist in week one of 2011. The only other artists to sell more albums in their first week of release were Adele, Rihanna and Coldplay.

This incredible achievement follows the success of his debut album, which was certified double platinum after being released last year.

Olly's current single 'Dance With Me Tonight' has enjoyed a second week at the number 2 slot in the singles chart, narrowly missing out to Rihanna in its first week, and The X Factor finalists last week.
