'Neighbours' actor Sam Clark has topped the Australian pop charts.
His debut single 'Broken' soared to the No 1 spot despite little radio play, it has been reported.
Clark, who plays Ringo Brown in the hit soap, released the song independently and raced to the top on the Australian Record Industry Association (ARIA) physical singles chart, which is calculated on CD sales rather than digital downloads.
The 22-year-old actor toured schools and shopping centres down under, but admitted he felt let down with the lack of radio support: "It has been disappointing and a real lesson on how the industry works," he told the Herald Sun.
"So it's been really encouraging to break into the top 50 with little or no radio play."
He plans to release an album later in the year.
