The only way is Uptown Funk as Mark Ronson recorded a fifth week at number one in the charts.

The British DJ/producer’s chirpy dancefloor filler is now the longest-serving chart-topper since Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines in June 2013, the Official Chart Company (OCC) said.

Ronson’s song, which features US star Bruno Mars, has sold 126,000 copies but is also the most streamed song this week, having been listened to 2.45 million times in the last seven days alone, according to OCC.

Ronson held off competition from Philip George’s Wish You Were Mine, with the Stevie Wonder-sampling hit remaining at two.

Hozier’s Take Me To Church went from five to three this week, swapping with Ed Sheeran’s Thinking Out Loud, with the pair sandwiching non-mover Up, by Olly Murs’ featuring Demi Lovato at four.

In the album charts George Ezra’s Brit Award nominated Wanted On Voyage returned to number one for the fourth time, keeping Sheeran’s X off the top by just 400 copies.

Wanted, which contains the hit singles Budapest and Blame It On Me, first topped the chart in October and was the third best-selling album of last year.

Fellow Brit nominee Sam Smith’s In The Lonely Hour fell from one to three, with Taylor Swift’s 1989 staying at four and Hozier’s self-titled debut jumping from 10 to five.
