Take That and Band Aid 30 are in a tight race to number one this weekend. 'Do They Know It's Christmas?' has been selling well over the first half of this week, but it's only 1,500 copies ahead of the man-band's new single, 'These Days.'
Take That's comeback song – their first since Jason Orange quit in September – saw a huge surge following their X Factor performance this weekend. If it gets to number one this weekend, it'll be their 12th chart topper since they scaled the singles chart with 'Pray' in 1993.
Olly Murs is holding on at number three with 'Wrapped Up', while Labrinth is on course to score another top five with 'Jealous' at four. McBusted complete the top five with their first proper single release as a super-group, 'Air Guitar.'
Ed Sheeran's at six with 'Thinking Out Loud' Clean Bandit and Jess Glynne slip to seven with 'Real Love' and One Direction's 'Steal My Girl' drops to eight.
Taylor Swift's at nine with 'Blank Space' and David Guetta completes the top 10 with 'Dangerous'.
