'21' hits the 2 million mark

Adele's album - 21 - has become one of the fastest selling releases in chart history.

The record sold 2 million copies in just 87 days.

The album, which contains the hit single Someone Like You, is now the joint-second fastest selling UK album ever.

It ties in second place with Dido's Life for Rent which also sold two million in 87 days in 2003.

Both lag behind the Robson and Jerome debut album, which took only 48 days to clock up two million sales in 1995.
