American former gospel singer Katy Perry has held onto her number one spot for the second week running.

Her single I Kissed A Girl, which has received criticism for its lyrics, keeps Kid Rock's All Summer Long firmly at number two, The Official UK Charts Company said.

Also this week, The Man Who Can't be Moved, the new single from The Script, climbs one place this week to reach number three. Also moving one spot up the chart is Love Is Noise by The Verve, at number four.

A new entry in at number seven from Madcon with the single Beggin' pushes Noah & the Whale's 5 Years Time down to number nine, two places down since last week. And Dizzee Rascal faces disappointment as his single Dance Wiv Me drops again this week, down two places to number five.

Also to enter the top 20 singles chart is Bloc Party's new track, Mercury.

The Script will be staging a double celebration this week as their single enters the top ten and their self-titled album, The Script, shoots straight in at number one on the album chart, knocking Abba's Gold from the top slot.

It has also managed to knock both Duffy's album Rockferry and Coldplay's Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends down one spot each to numbers three and four respectively.

Noah and the Whale fare better in the album chart than the singles, their album Peaceful The World Lays Me Down snatching the number five spot. Another new entry in the top ten album chart is Jane McDonald's album Jane, which claims place number seven.

Gabriella Cilmi's Lessons To Be Learned goes against the grain this week by moving up three places from number 22 to number 19.

There were two new entries in the top 40 albums. Letters From The Underground by The Levellers at number 24 and Fantasy Black Channel by Late Of The Pier, taking the number 28 spot.
