Cheryl Cole has scored her second UK number 1 single with Promise This, giving her the biggest-selling first week non-charity single of 2010.

The track may have given Cheryl her second solo number 1, but it also matched her debut single, Fight For This Love, which was also one of one of the biggest first week single sales of 2009, eventually selling more than 290,000 copies in total.

Promise This dethroned Bruno Mars' Just The Way You Are from the top spot as Rihanna's new single, Only Girl (In The World) entered the chart in second position.

RiRi also managed to break the non-charity single selling record after the Rude Boy singer shifted an impressive 126,000 copies of her single.

As well as scoring a number 1 single, Chezza's sophomore LP, Messy Little Raindrops, is released today with the singer hoping to achieve the same success as her first triple-platinum album, 3 Words.

Cole will be hoping to knock Kings Of Leon from the album top spot after they held off the likes of Michael Bublé, Cheryl's XF protege Joe McElderry and The Wanted to stay at number 1.
