Robbie Williams' hit Feel was the most played song on radio in Europe in 2003, according to a music survey.

Two other British acts - Dido and Craig David - rounded out the top three, said analysts Music Control.

Williams' song was one of three tracks from his album Escapology which featured in the survey's top 20.

Other British acts in the airplay list's top 200 included Blue, Coldplay, Simply Red, Sugababes, Phil Collins, Seal and R&B threesome Mis-Teeq.

The trio beat songs from US stars such as the Black Eyed Peas, Christina Aguilera and Justin Timberlake.

Williams' two other songs in the European Top 20 were Come Undone and Something Beautiful.

Come Undone was the most-played track in Germany, while Feel was the most-played track in the Netherlands and the third-most played track in Germany.

Acts from the UK and the US dominated the top half of the list, with acts from the European mainland only making up 24% of the total.

The only songs from the mainland in the top 20 were Russian duo Tatu's All the Things She Said at number 13 and Move Your Feet by the Danish group Junior Senior at number 20.

The figures show a decline compared to previous years. In 1999 European acts had 38.6% of the European airplay top 100.
