Taylor Swift has made U.K. pop chart history by landing her third number one album in a year.

Fearless (Taylor's Version) has debuted at the top of the Official Charts Company's countdown, making her the first solo artist to rack up a trio of number ones in less than 12 months.

Her 2020 releases Folklore and Evermore also topped the chart.

Only the Beatles have managed the same feat.

The revamped Fearless album becomes Swift's seventh number one album in the U.K. and bests her chart high with the original in 2008 - that version of Fearless reached number five in Britain.

The project is the first release in Swift's ongoing battle to regain control of her master recordings and includes reworked tracks featuring Maren Morris and Keith Urban, among others.

She took to Twitter to share her delight at the news, as she reposted the Official Chart announcement that her album was number one.

"Home is where the (heart) is but God I (love) the UK!!!" Swift wrote.

The singer has been spending time in the country thanks to her long-term romance with British actor Joe Alwyn.
