'Gold' is now the fourth biggest selling album in the UK after Queen's 'Greatest Hits', The Beatles' 'Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band' and Oasis' 'What's The Story Morning Glory'.

Gold is also the second album of ABBA songs to top the UK album charts in recent weeks. The soundtrack to new film based on the hit musical 'Mamma Mia!' was number one two weeks ago.
