PTI 28 Sep 2009, 1:50:15 IST

Madonna secured her 11th number one album in Britain on Sunday when her greatest hits collection "Celebration" shot to the top of the charts -- equalling Elvis Presley's record.

The pop diva's collection of 36 hits spanning her lengthy career knocked Muse's "The Resistance" from the number one position in its debut week, the Official UK Charts Company said.

The singer has now matched Elvis Presley's record of 11 number one albums for a solo artist in Britain, and is four behind The Beatles who hold the all-time record of 15 top-selling albums, according to the company, which compiles the weekly rundown.

Madonna also becomes the most successful female solo artist of all time in Britain with the most weeks at the top of the album charts -- 29 -- the most number one singles -- 13 -- and the most chart doubles for topping the singles and album charts simultaneously - four, the company said.

The top of the singles chart remains the same, with singer songwriter Taio Cruz holding on to the number one spot for a second week with "Break Your Heart."
