Minogue has become the first solo female artist to have a number one album in the UK across five decades, after her latest album, Disco, went straight to number one this week.

Dark Side of the Moon has spent a total of 297 weeks in the charts since its release in 1973. Now, Six60's album has spent 298 weeks - achieving the feat in consecutive weeks in less than six years, another record to top Pink Floyd.
