Up a massive 6 places, Stormzy's 'Hide & Seek' is this week's Big Top 40 Number 1. He fought off competition from the Number 1 for the last 3 weeks, 'Unholy' by Sam Smith featuring Kim Petras, and other huge new entries from Taylor Swift.

Stormzy is Number 1! This marks Stormzy's 4th time reaching the top of the charts, following his feature on Ed Sheeran's 'Shape Of You' in 2017, the stunning 'Blinded By Your Grace Pt. 2' (2018) and 'Own It' (feat. Ed Sheeran & Burna Boy).

Check out the moment Stormzy found out about the Number 1 here:

Last week's Number 1, 'Unholy' by Sam Smith featuring Kim Petras, dropped three places to Number 4. Oliver Tree & Robin Schulz's 'Miss You' is this week's highest climber, climbing 26 places to Number 6.

Stormzy also faced massive competition from the queen of songwriting herself, Taylor Swift. Taylor released her new album 'Midnights', with lead single 'Anti-Hero' being the highest new entry of the week, at Number 7. Three hours after releasing Midnights, Taylor also announced the (3am Edition) of the album, with 'The Great War', 'Would've, Could've, Should've' and 'Bigger Than The Whole Sky' all making entries into the chart. Taylor now has 42 entries in The Big Top 40 - what an achievement!

Other new entries include George Ezra's 'Dance All Over Me' new at 34, the latest single from George's album 'Gold Rush Kid' Southstar's 'Miss You' at 20 and 'Lionheart (Fearless)' by Joel Corry & Tom Grennan at 14.
