After three weeks, Little Mix's 'Woman Like Me' has been knocked off the top spot on The Official Vodafone Big Top 40.

Ariana Grande's new song 'thank u, next' has gone straight in at Number 1, knocking Little Mix to Number 7.

The track was a surprise release last weekend, with Ari name-checking her ex-boyfriends Mac Miller, Pete Davidson, Big Sean and Ricky Alvarez in the song's opening verse.

'thank u, next' was premiered just half an hour before ex Pete Davidson was due to appear on US show Saturday Night Live.

It becomes Ari's fourth Number 1 in the UK, following the hit single 'No Tears Left to Cry' which spent three weeks at the top in April and May earlier this year.

Elsewhere in the Top 10, Pink and her daughter Willow's version of 'A Million Dreams' from the upcoming The Greatest Showman: Reimagined covers album climbed to Number 2.

James Arthur's 'Empty Space' and Jonas Blue, Liam Payne and Lennon Stella's 'Polaroid' were also big climbers this week.

After Ariana, the next highest New Entry came from Cheryl. The former Girls Aloud star released her first new song in four years on Friday and 'Love Made Me Do It' entered the chart at Number 17.

There were also New Entries this week from Professor Green, Sigrid, Kelly Clarkson and Queen.
