Vera Lynn on track to claim best-selling female artist album – aged 100

Dame Vera Lynn is on course to beat her younger rivals by claiming thebest-selling female artist album released this year.

The Forces Sweetheart looks set to claim the trophy at the age of 100, triumphing over the likes of Dua Lipa and Zara Larsson.

Sheeran’s Divide album is the fastest-selling male artist album of all time.
