Walliams scores 50th number one with The World's Worst Teachers

David Walliams has bagged his 50th week at number one as The World’s Worst Teachers (HarperCollins) schools the charts for a fifth week running, selling 27,184 copies to once again claim the UK Official Top 50 top spot.

With five weeks under its belt, The World’s Worst Teachers, illustrated by Tony Ross, is the longest-running title from the World’s Worst series, beating The World’s Worst Children 2 on four. It has now also outlasted last autumn’s The Ice Monster, which racked up four weeks at the top. It has taken Walliams just under six years to achieve the half-century.
