Ed Sheeran's 'Bad Habits' becomes the singer's biggest Number 1 to date.

'Bad Habits' has now spent more weeks at the top of the charts than any of Ed Sheeran's previous Number 1 hits.

This Sunday, the track clocked its seventh week at Number 1 - more weeks than any other Ed Sheeran song.

'Shape of You' and 'I Don't Care' with Justin Bieber were Ed's previous longest-running Number 1 songs.

Both managed a total of six weeks at the top of The Official Big Top 40, the UK's biggest chart show.

Ed is the most successful artist in chart history with 11 Number 1s, more than any other artist.

The singer's current competition is coming from Anne-Marie and Little Mix's collaboration 'Kiss My (Uh-Oh)'.

The track climbed to a peak of Number 2 this Sunday and is likely to push for the top spot again next week.
