Brit Award winner Tom Walker's debut album has entered the charts at number one.

The Scottish singer-songwriter fended off competition from industry heavyweight Bryan Adams, whose new album is straight in at number two.

Walker, who released his debut album What A Time To Be Alive last week, went straight to the top of the charts with 37,000 combined sales, 64% of which came from physical sales, the Official Charts Company said.

The musician, who won the British breakthrough act gong at the Brits, thanked his fans for their support as he celebrated the accolade.

He said: "To everybody who has bought, supported and just been absolutely lovely about this record, who have come to the shows and been there since day one, here we are.

"Thank you so, so much. Thank you for the support. This is next level."

Walker, 27, broke into the charts with his breakout single Leave A Light On in 2017.

Canadian superstar Adams' new record Shine A Light is in at number two, making it his 10th UK top 10 album.

The albums chart has also been impacted by the death of The Prodigy's Keith Flint earlier this week, with three of the band's albums returning to the top 40.

The Prodigy's Their Law: The Singles is at number 13, The Fat Of The Land is at 26, and No Tourists, which topped the chart in November, is back in at 35.

Over on the singles chart, Scotland's Lewis Capaldi has scored another week at number one with Someone You Loved.

The ballad finished the week 6000 combined sales ahead of its closest competitor - Calvin Harris and Rag'N'Bone Man's Giant.

This week's highest new entry on the singles chart is Sucker by the Jonas Brothers, who have reunited to release their first new music in five years.

The track is their first ever UK top 10 single.
