Lily Allen returned to the top of the singles chart this past weekend but this week she faces competition from three artists as they fight for their place at the top.

On this midweek chart up date according to the Official Charts Company Lily Allen faces competition from Ellie Goulding, Leona Lewis and Avicii who all want to claim that top spot.

At present Lily Allen remains Number (1) on the Official Singles Chart but at this midweek stage there are less than 7,000 copies separating the Top 4.

‘Somewhere Only We Know’ is Lily Allen’s cover of the hit Keane track and has been used for the John Lewis Christmas advert and this isn’t the first time Lily Allen has been at the top of the charts with the track.
