Newlywed British pop star Cheryl Cole has been given another reason to celebrate after scoring her fourth solo number one single in the U.K. with Crazy Stupid Love. The Fight For This Love singer becomes only the third British female in the history of the nation's charts to achieve such a feat, following in the footsteps of former Spice Girls member Geri Halliwell and Rita Ora. Celebrating the success of her first single in two years, Cole says, "It feels great to be back but even more special to have achieved my fourth number one. So exciting!" Crazy Stupid Love, featuring rapper Tinie Tempah, was released in the U.K. just days after she announced she had wed her boyfriend of three months, Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini. It debuted ahead of Magic!'s Rude at two and Ghost by Ella Henderson at three. Meanwhile, Ed Sheeran racks up a fifth week at the top of the U.K. albums chart with X, making it the longest-running number one since Adele's 21 spent 11 straight weeks in pole position in 2011. Dolly Parton's Blue Smoke - The Best Of climbs to second place and Sam Smith rounds out the top three at three with In The Lonely Hour.
