The 'Clown' singer is the first solo artist to score more than 47 weeks in the album chart top ten.

Emeli Sande has broken another record in the UK with her debut album, putting her just behind The Beatles in terms of the most consecutive weeks spent on the album chart top ten.

The Scottish singer-songwriter's debut 'Our Version Of Events' has remained in the top ten for the past 47 weeks in total, after originally being released back in February last year.

Emeli has now made another record after being the only solo artist to have spent as many consecutive weeks within the top ten albums of the chart, fresh from being named the biggest selling UK album of 2012 with over 1.43 million copies sold nation-wide.

The Beatles still hold the record for the longest consecutive album run inside the top ten, after their 1964 debut 'Please Please Me' staying there for 62 weeks in total.

It was announced in late 2012 that 'My Kind Of Love' singer Emeli is set to perform live at the Isle Of Wight Festival this coming June.

Emeli Sande is set to release a live CD and DVD set of 'Live At The Royal Albert Hall', from her concert back in November, on 4th February featuring live performances of all her biggest hits to date.
