The four-piece boyband have been reigning the top of the iTunes listings since their victory on the ITV show on Sunday night, but in yesterday’s official chart update – which counts all downloads and streams since 0:01 on Friday – they were only No46.

The Official Charts Company adds that they are now only 1,000 combined sales from the Top 5. This week’s final rundown will be revealed on Friday – so they have until 23:59 on Thursday night to maintain their current momentum and continue rising.
