Faryl album a hit

Faryl Smith has stormed into the top of the charts with her new album which was released yesterday.

The 14-year-old also appeared on BBC2 show Ready, Steady Cook yesterday and her new record is set to be one of the most popular CDs in the run-up to Christmas.

Wonderland is number one in Amazon's symphonies chart, 13th in easy listening and 95th across all musical types.

A spokesman for HMV in Kettering said: "Sales of the new Faryl album have got off to a storming start – she is proving hugely popular at HMV.

"We're actually selling as many copies of Faryl's new album as we are Susan Boyle right now."
