The Official Charts Company reported on Wednesday that Miley Cyrus looked set to score a double this weekend in both the Singles and Albums chart.

Earlier tonight, it was revealed that indeed the 20 year old has become the first artist of 2013 to have both a number 1 single and album simultaneously.

Miley Cyrus, the former Disney Channel star has topped the Official Singles Chart with her smash hit ‘Wrecking Ball’ which is taken from her new album ‘Bangerz’ which has also topped the Official Albums Chart.

Miley only scored her first UK number 1 a few months ago when ‘We Can’t Stop’ topped the charts.
