Great news: Justin Bieber is here to do his verse on immovable number 1 Despacito! Because he has another hit alongside David Guetta, who's also here, bouncing up and down behind the decks.

Top of the Pops, 15th June 2017

Not surprisingly, the One Love Manchester concert has a big influence on TOTP this week. As well as Ariana Grande's own song (which just misses number 1), hits from Miley Cyrus, Manchester's own Liam Gallagher, Black Eyed Peas and Oasis (performed in reprise here by friends of the show Coldplay despite Liam actually being present) all make big gains in the chart.

Away from Manchester, French Montana and Swae Lee are still going strong and Camila Cabello has her first solo hit. And the portoriquenses hold firm at the top, semana numero cinco por encima.

Debuts: Camila Cabello (as solo), Liam Gallagher (as solo).

Coldplay - Don't Look Back In Anger

High Climber - Up 41 to number 25

Miley Cyrus - Malibu

Up 1 to number 15

Camila Cabello - Crying In The Club

Up 23 to number 23

French Montana ft. Swae Lee - Unforgettable

Up 1 to number 5

Liam Gallagher - Wall Of Glass / Live Forever

Up 39 to number 21 / Back in at number 45

From The Vault: Black Eyed Peas - Where Is The Love?

Back in at number 42

Ariana Grande - One Last Time

Up 10 to number 2

Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee - Despacito

Fifth week at number 1

Top of the Pops, 8th June 2017

In their fourth week at number 1 it's time for Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee to start getting creative, so they get Little Mix to drop some bars in a special exclusive remix. Little Mix are here in their own right for their power collaboration with Stormzy and as ever they're only too happy to do double duty.

Also on the TOTP stage are the finally returning Rita Ora, a second airing for Niall Horan's new song, Hailee Steinfeld and Maggie Linderman. And Coldplay remain popular with record buyers and streamers.

The highest new entry comes from Captain Ska. They're allowed to perform, but in such a heavily bleeped and blurred version (to comply with election broadcasting rules) that it's impossible to tell who they are, what they're doing or what they're singing about.

Debuts: Captain Ska.

Little Mix ft. Stormzy - Power

In at number 27

Hailee Steinfeld - Most Girls

High Climber - Up 21 to number 41

Rita Ora - Your Song

In at number 13

Niall Horan - Slow Hands

Up 2 to number 21

Maggie Lindemann - Pretty Girl

Up 2 to number 15

Coldplay - Something Just Like This

Up 1 to number 25

Captain Ska - Liar Liar

Highest New Entry - In at number 4

Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee ft. Little Mix - Despacito

Fourth week at number 1

Top of the Pops, 1st June 2017

The Puerto Rico contingent are still bringing the fiesta to the number 1 spot, though the last remaining One Directioner Liam Payne runs them close-ish with his new Sheeran-penned, Sheeran-alike, I-can't-believe-it's-not-Sheeran track Strip That Down.

Other than that it's US solo starlets alternating with the producer-plus-feature production line; Cheat Codes and Demi Lovato even tick both boxes. Needless to say Ariana Grande isn't in the studio, but we play a tribute video to accompany her re-entry One Last Time.

Debuts: Liam Payne (as solo).

Highest New Entry - In at number 3

Cheat Codes ft. Demi Lovato - No Promises
