Will.i.am and Britney Spears might be number one in the singles chart again this week, but what's really interesting is that the cast of 'Les Miserables' have topped the official album chart.

This makes the stars of Tom Hooper's Oscar-nominated adaptation the first film cast to scoop a number one album in almost 16 years.

The last film cast to achieve this was 'Evita', helped by Madonna's vocals, in 1997.


Self-proclaimed "marmite artist" Kate Nash has announced an extensive UK tour for April, taking in 26 dates in under a month.

The tour will start in Cambridge on Thursday 4 April and will finish at London’s renowned 100 Club on 1 May.

The Brit Award winning singer, who first had chart success with single 'Foundations' and platinum-selling UK number one album 'Made of Bricks' in 2007, will perform tracks from her forthcoming album ‘Girl Talk’, out on 4 March.
