NORTH-EAST Pop Idol finalist Zoe Birkett last night looked likely to have the lowest chart entry so far of any contestant from the hit show.

The 17-year-old, from Darlington, had high hopes of making the Top Ten with her debut single, Treat Me Like a Lady, which was released on Monday.

But first day sales of the record across the country suggest she will enter the charts at number 16 on Sunday - lower than any other Pop Idol contestant.

Fame Academy winner David Sneddon is on course to top the charts with his debut, Stop Living a Lie.
