Ed Sheeran's album 'X' has become the longest reigning top 10 album from a British artist.

The singer's second studio record - which was released in June 2014 - has stayed in the UK top 10 for 73 consecutive weeks, smashing a record previously set by Adele's '21'.

Ed commented: "2015 is definitely going to be one to remember. Wembley in the summer was such a big career highlight and now to hear that I've landed the longest run in the Top 10 for a British artist has really put the cherry on top. To all my brilliant fans - thank you!"

The album - which was the biggest and fastest-selling LP in the UK last year - has shifted more than 10 million copies since its release and the milestone comes on the same day as the release of the 24-year-old star's debut concert film 'Jumpers For Goalposts'.

The film was shot in July during his three consecutive sold-out shows at London's Wembley Stadium which saw him perform to more than 240,000 people.

As well as footage from the concert and behind-the-scenes material, the DVD is packaged with a CD featuring five exclusive new tracks 'English Rose', 'Touch and Go', 'New York', 'Make It Rain' and his Rudimental collaboration 'Lay It All On Me'.
