The 24-year-old from Paisley, near Glasgow, who until winning the Academy last month earned cash by busking, said: "I never thought this would happen.

"I wrote Stop Living The Lie when I was 17 so it's taken me seven years to get to number one - and that's quite a long time.

"Thanks to everyone who bought it, I'm really overwhelmed. Now I'm going to go and have a drink to celebrate."

After winning Fame Academy, Sneddon secured a year-long superstar lifestyle and a 1m record contract.

The group Busted are also celebrating after their single Year 3000 was a new entry at No 2.

Other entries straight into the Top 10 include Jaimeson's True in at No 4 and Panjabi MC's Mundian to Bach Ke at No 5.

Layo & Bushwacka! are in at No 8 with Love Story and at No 10 there is a new entry for Feeder with Just the Way I'm Feeling.

Meanwhile, there was not much change in the album chart, with no new entries in the Top 10.

Avril Lavigne stays in pole position with Let Go.
