Miley Cyrus has got herself another UK Number 1! Climbing 1 from last week's Number 2, 'Flowers' becomes Miley's 5th UK Number 1 following 'We Can't Stop', 'Nothing Breaks Like A Heart', 'Wrecking Ball' and 'Midnight Sky'. Congratulations Miley!
Miley fought off huge competition from Joel Corry and Tom Grennan's 'Lionheart (Fearless)', which climbs 2 to re-peak at Number 2. Joel and Tom's hit has now been in the Top 10 for 9 weeks. Can it make it a perfect 10 next week, and finally get that Number 1?
