Ella Henderson debuts @ #1 in the UK + Performs at BBC Radio 1 Teen Awards

The X Factor alum Ella Henderson has taken this week’s Official Albums Chart Number 1 title with her debut release Chapter One.

Chapter One, which features Official Singles Chart Number 1 Ghost, as well as Top 10 follow up Glow, finishes the week over 16,000 copies ahead of its nearest rival, as well as becoming the second fastest-selling female debut chart-topper of 2014 behind Sam Bailey’s Power Of Love.

“To be a part of the music industry as a whole is something I'm learning to embrace, just seeing my name up there with other artists I admire and look up to is so surreal in itself,” Ella told OfficialCharts.com, “being Number 1 with my very first album is where a dream has met reality- it's a moment in time I will never forget.”

BBC Radio 1 Teen Awards hosts Nick Grimshaw and Rita Ora presented the news to Ella live on stage as she performed at the event in London's SSE Arena this afternoon.
