Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello's seven-week reign at Number 1 has been brought to an end.

Kygo and Whitney Houston's 'Higher Love' has knocked Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello's 'Señorita' from Number 1.

The saucy collaboration had spent the last seven weeks at the top of The Official Big Top 40, even breaking the record for the most weeks at Number 1 this year.

Until this week, 'Higher Love' had peaked at Number 2, sitting behind 'Señorita' during its epic reign at the top.

Anne-Marie and Freya Ridings joined Will Manning on the show this week to see where their respective songs charted.

Anne-Marie took on Will's 'Official Big Top 40 Second Challenge' and managed to do some hilarious impressions of chart stars, such as Lewis Capaldi, Billie Eilish and Cardi B.

Meanwhile, Freya Ridings tried to 'Freya-up' another song in the chart - doing a surprise cover of Young T & Bugsey's hit 'Strike A Pose' on our tiny keyboard.

The week's highest New Entry came from Taylor Swift. 'Lover' - the title track of her upcoming album - was released on Friday and shot straight into the UK's biggest chart show at Number 12.

There were also New Entries this week from Normani, Liam Gallagher, Miley Cyrus and David Guetta & Martin Solveig.
