Adele's 21 is the biggest album of the millennium in the UK so far, selling more than any other record.

The singer's second LP, released in 2011 via XL Recordings, has so far sold nearly 4.74 million copies, according to Official Charts data. The album spent 23 weeks at No.1 on the Official Albums Chart.

Amy Winehouse's Back To Black, which came out in 2006, was the second biggest album, with sales of more than 3.56m since its release. James Blunt's Back To Bedlam came third, with sales of 3.31m since its release in 2005. As Blunt's first album, it's the best-selling debut this millennium.
