Clean Bandit have held on to the number one spot on the UK singles chart again this week, despite facing some stiff competition.

‘Rockabye’ logged its sixth week on top of the chart on Friday, holding off One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson and ‘x factor’ winner Matt Terry.

The week’s highest new entry, at number two, came from One Direction star Louis Tomlinson, with ‘Just Hold On’ a collaboration with Steve Aoki. The pair performed the track for the first time on last Saturday's ‘X Factor’ final, just days after Louis’ mother Johannah Deakin tragically past away.

At number three is this year’s ‘X Factor’ winner Matt Terry with the Ed Sheeran penned ‘When Christmas Comes Around’. The track managed to take the number three spot after only five days’ sales and streams.

Elsewhere in the chart, the top five was rounded out by The Weeknd featuring Daft Punk at four with ‘Starboy’ and Rag’n’Bone Man at five with ‘Human’.
