Take That have gone straight in at number one on the Official Singles Chart and are “made-up” with their success.

Their track These Days overtook midweek leaders Band Aid 30 to take the top spot by just 2,500 copies.

The feat earns the trio – who lost long-time member Jason Orange this year – their 12th number one single and first chart-topper in six years after 2008’s Greatest Day.

The manband told OfficialCharts.com: “We cannot believe it, we’re really made-up and we can’t thank everybody enough.”

Olly Murs and Travie McCoy hold at number three with Wrapped Up, Ed Sheeran remains at four with Thinking Out Loud, and Clean Bandit’s Real Love is at number five.

Meanwhile, Jennifer Lawrence scores her first UK top 40 single with The Hanging Tree at number 14.

The song, which features on the new Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 soundtrack, is by James Newton Howard.

Over on the Official Albums Chart, Olly Murs’s new album Never Been Better went straight in at number one.

The singer’s fourth studio LP sold 93,000 copies to take this week’s top spot, 20,000 copies ahead of its closest competitor Ed Sheeran, who holds at number two with X.

Last week’s leaders One Direction are at number three with their album Four, Sam Smith’s In The Lonely Hour is at number four, and Pink Floyd’s The Endless River completes the top five.

David Guetta went in at number eight with his sixth album Listen, while n ew at number 13 was Susan Boyle’s sixth album Hope, and Boyzone’s Motown covers album Dublin To Detroit entered at 14.

Dave Arch & The Strictly Band’s Strictly Come Dancing album is at number 22, and Jools Holland was at number 17 with his collaborations record Sirens Of Song.

Meanwhile, the latest instalment of the Now That’s What I Call Music! franchise, Now 89, has become the fastest selling album of 2014 so far in the UK.

The compilation has sold 283,000 copies since it went on sale on Monday November 24, overtaking the record set by its predecessor Now That’s What I Call Music! 88, which sold 224,000 in its opening week back in July.
