Adele's '21' has become the fourth biggest-selling album of all time in the UK.

According to data from the Official Charts Company, the soul singer's second LP has overtaken Oasis's 1995 record '(What's The Story) Morning Glory?'. The album, which was produced by Paul Epworth, has now shifted 4,562,000 copies, meaning it just edges ahead of the Britpop-era LP from the Gallagher brothers, which has sales figures of 4,555,000.

Queen's 'Greatest Hits' collection remains the UK's biggest-selling album, having sold a whopping 5,866,000 copies, with The Beatles' 1967 record 'Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band' in second place with 5,059,000. In third, meanwhile, is ABBA's greatest hits compilation 'Gold', which has sold 5,046,000.
