Whitney Houston could return to the top of the UK Singles and Album chart this week, with her death causing a huge upturn in sales for the iconic pop star.

Houston, who passed away on Saturday (Feb 11), currently has 39 songs in the iTunes top 200 with her album 'Ultimate Collection' album curently at number one ahead of this weeks official chart topper, Lana Del Rey's 'Born To Die'.

Meanwhile, Whitney's 'Greatest Hits' album is at number four.

However, iTunes and Whitney's record label have come under fire after the price of the albums increased twice during the day after her death. Initially the albums cost £4.99 each before going up to £7.99. Downloading a Whitney Houston album on iTunes currently costs £9.99.

Jennifer Hudson payed tribute to Whitney with a special performance of her hit 'I Will Always Love You' at the Grammy Awards last night (Feb 12).
