Ex-Westlife star Brian McFadden has gone straight to the top of the singles chart with his first solo release.
Brian McFadden left boy band Westlife in March 2004
Real To Me pushed Nelly's My Place/Flap Your Wings down to number two. McFly's new single, That Girl, could only manage a new entry at three.
"I feel like Coventry City have won the FA Cup," the Sky Blues fan said
after hearing the news.
McFadden hit the top spot 12 times during his time with Westlife, before quitting the band in March this year.
Remaining members Nicky Byrne, Shane Filan, Kian Egan and Mark Feehily have continued as a foursome.
McFadden launched his solo career this summer, changing from 'Bryan' to 'Brian', the original spelling of his first name.
He co-wrote Real To Me with Robbie Williams' former songwriting partner, Guy Chambers.
McFadden's debut solo album is due for release in November.
