Pop star Robbie Williams' new big band album Swings Both Ways has become the 1,000th record to top the UK charts.
He achieves the milestone 57 years after Frank Sinatra had the first number one, with Songs For Swingin' Lovers, in 1956.
Since then, more than 3,000 album charts have been published - with the Beatles the most frequent visitors to the top.
Williams has now had 11 number ones as a solo artist, equaling Elvis Presley.
If you include his four number ones as a member of Take That, he has been in pole position 15 times - the same as The Beatles.
However, measured by duration at the top, Williams still has a long way to go. The Beatles have spent 174 weeks - over three years - at number one, while Williams languishes behind on 31.
