New entry. Craig Armstrong's rom-com soundtrack makes it into the chart for the first time

Richard Curtis' Love Actually has become as much a part of Christmas as mince pies and turkey.

The film, starring seemingly everyone in Hollywood, first hit the big screen in 2003. It follows a handful of couples in the run-up to Christmas and mixes comedy and tragedy liberally.

Craig Armstrong's score underlines the key moments in the film with rich orchestral music while complementing the songs used elsewhere in the movie — by the likes of Kelly Clarkson, The Pointer Sisters and Joni Mitchell.
