Emeli Sande has broken The Beatles' near 50 year record for the most consecutive weeks in the UK's Official Albums Chart Top 10.
The Scottish singer’s debut album Our Version of Events, released in February of last year, has featured in the charts for 63 consecutive weeks beating the previous record.
The iconic British band previously held the record when their album ‘Please Please Me’ spent 62 weeks inside the top 10 between 1963 and 1964.
Our Version of Events has gone on to become the biggest selling album of 2012 with over 1.82 million copies sold.
