It's been a while in the making, but Jahmene Douglas could be on course for the UK number one spot with his debut album, Love Never Fails.

And having timed the release so it comes out before the Teeside native releases his own long player later this year, Jahmene looks a dead cert to score his first number one, with midweek sales placing him at the top of the album chart.
His likely feat is more impressive given he's knocked Robin Thicke's new album Blurred Lines down to number two, while rap veteran Jay-Z is at number three with Magna Carta Holy Grail.
