There's little change in the singles and album charts, but it's looking positive for Justin Timberlake and Bastille in particular.

During the midweek chart update on Wednesday, Bastille had the number one album and Justin Timberlake was sitting pretty at the top of the singles chart with Mirrors. Since then, both artists have strengthened their leads at the top.

Singles chart update:

JT is number one, ahead of Bastille's Pompeii at two and Bruno Mars' When I Was Your Man at three.

Pink continues to ride the success of her platinum album The Truth About Love; Just Give Me A Reason is at five, beating the likes of Bridgit Mendler and Taylor Swift for a place in the top five.

Olly Murs' Army of Two slips to 13, while Fleetwood Mac re-enter the charts at 15 thanks to the viral #DancePonyDance campaign from mobile network Three.

Album chart update:

Bastille's Bad Blood is the clear frontrunner on the chart. Meanwhile, Stereophonics manage a respectable second place with Graffiti On The Train and Dido's comeback Girl Who Got Away holds strong at fourth place.
