The Scottish star had previously broken chart records in April of this year when he notched up eight top ten hits from his album "18 Months".

His new personal best comes with the release of single "Thinking About You" with singer Ayah Marar - which ranked at number nine in the charts this weekend.

The album has sold more than 543,000 copies in the UK since its release in October.
