We were amazed as anyone when we heard that Bradley Walsh - of all people - scored the biggest-selling British debut album of 2016.
You heard that right. Out of all the new artists of last year, it was The Chase host Bradders who achieved the best-selling of the lot.
Following his number one smash Chasing Dreams, Bradley will release When You're Smiling just in time for Christmas on November 10.
The album will be another collection of covers, including songs by the likes of Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Tony Bennett, Nat King Cole and Louis Armstrong, as well as songs from musicals including Cabaret, The King and I and Guys And Dolls.
Bradley says of the new album: “I am very flattered that so many people loved Chasing Dreams. The amazing response that we received was a big surprise to us all and now we have to follow up that success with the second album.
"We have had a great time revisiting some of our favourite songs from stage and screen and I am very proud of what we’ve achieved. I can only hope that people enjoy listening to it as much as we did making it."
