It might have taken six attempts but Panic! At The Disco are set to score their first no.1 album in the UK, according to the Official Charts Company.

Pray For The Wicked, the sixth studio album by Brendon Urie, is currently 5,500 combined chart sales ahead of The Greatest Showman's Motion Picture Cast Recording, which has held the top spot for the last 20 weeks (god help us all).

Panic!'s highest charting album was 2008's Pretty. Odd, which reached no.2 on the album charts back in 2008. The other albums peaked at the following positions: A Fever You Can't Sweat Out (17), Vice & Virtues (29), Too Weird To Live, Too Rare Too Die (10), Death of a Bachelor (4).

The album has clearly gone down well with fans with many praising the inclusivity of the lyrics to 'Dancing's Not A Crime' and 'Roaring 20s' has already become an early fan favourite. And, of course, the memes are out of control.

Let's hope Panic! can hold on to the top spot until Friday.
