'The Definitive Collection' heading to number one...
Lionel Richie

Lionel Richie played this year's Glastonbury Festival, occupying the now traditional 'oldies' slot.

Drawing one of the weekend's biggest crowds, the genial entertainer breezed through his catalogue of hits with his usual panache.

Enjoying a post-Glastonbury bump, the singer's greatest hits album 'The Definitive Collection' has leaped up the charts.

Top of the mid-week countdown, 'The Definitive Collection' has soared by more than 100 places. Lionel Richie told the BBC:

"When they told me this morning, I was screaming like a kid with his first hit record. I'm trying to be very calm about this, but there's no way you can be calm about this. This is like Christmas."

Will Lionel hang on? Wait and see...
