English singer-songwriter Robbie Williams on Friday equalled Elvis Presley’s record for the most UK number one albums by a solo artist,

with his new collection of festive songs.

The Christmas Present was the British pop star’s 13th number one solo album. The Beatles holds the overall record with 15.

Williams also scored four chart-topping albums with his old band Take That, taking his personal haul to 17.

Only Beatles members Paul McCartney (22) and John Lennon (18) have scored more number ones in total across their careers, with Williams drawing level with the band’s lead guitarist George Harrison on 17.  AFP
