North London singing sensation Adele has toppled Michael Jackson to claim the UK's fifth best selling album in history.

Sales fidures show that the 23-year-old's second album has sold 4,274,300 copies in the UK - 500 more than Michael Jackson's iconic album Thriller.

"To add to her many landmark records, Adele's achievement in overtaking Thriller in the all-time sales list is truly remarkable," said Martin Talbot, The Official Charts Company’s managing director.

"Thriller has long been recognised as one of the most iconic albums of all time - there is now no doubt that 21 can be spoken of in the same breath."

Since the release of 21, the album has spent 23 weeks at number one, beating Amy Winehouse's Back To Black to become the biggest selling album of the 21st Century and has won Adele six Grammys and two Brits.

The UK's Top 5 biggest selling albums of all-time:

1) Greatest Hits - Queen

2) Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band - The Beatles

3) Gold - Greatest Hits - Abba

4) What's The Story Morning Glory? - Oasis

5) 21 - Adele.
