Little Mix at number one

The Shout Out To My Ex singers sold over 96,000 copies of their latest record making it the fastest-selling number one album from a girl group in 15 years since Destiny's Child topped the charts with Survivor in 2001.
Little Mix said of their achievement: "We say it all the time but we really do have the BEST fans in the world & we love you to the moon and back! LET THE #GLORYDAYS ROLL."
