“It’s fantastic!” Sheeran told the OfficialCharts. “It’s nice to finally have a No.1 in my home country. Thank you to everyone who supported the single for making this happen.”

According to the Official Charts Company’s sales data, ‘Sing’ has sold nearly 124,000 copies over the last seven days.

Sing, which was co-written and produced by Pharrell Williams, is the second single to be released from Sheeran’s hotly anticipated new album, ‘X’; it’s predecessor, ‘One’, peaked at No.18 on the Official Singles Chart last month after just 48 hours on sale. ‘X ‘will be released in the UK on June 23.

Meanwhile, Sam Smith held firm at No.2 today with Stay With Me, while last week’s chart topper, ‘I Wanna Feel’ by Anglo-American DJ and producer Secondcity slides two places to No.3.

‘Waves’ by Mr Probz remains static at No. 4, and John Legend’s ‘All Of Me’ (No.5) completes this week’s Top 5.
