Top of the Pops, 16th March 2017

It's the moment we'd all awaited with bated breath: Captain Ed Sheeran releases his album and dominates the top 20, leaving little room for anything else and in particular making it very hard for other songs to climb the chart. But it's certainly historic. We're pretty restrained here on TOTP and stick to just four Ed songs, viz, his still-dominant number 1 and his three highest entries. These form a fun triptych where he meets a girl in the world's most authentic Irish bar, falls head over heels in love, then gets dumped and loveably slags off her new fella.

Aside from that, we've actually managed to cobble together a fairly watchable show. There are biggish new entries from Lorde (hugely anticipated) and Little Mix (friends of the show), plus lower-down climbers from Julia Michaels, J Hus, Bruno Mars and Martin Jensen's unkillable dance track. Fresh, diverse, what more could you ask for?
