Peter Andre has been named Britain's hardest working singer for notching up more major concerts in 2010 than any other artist.

The Mysterious Girl singer topped the list, compiled by PRS for Music, after performing to almost 100,000 fans on his 38-date Revelation tour in 2010.

Previous winners Status Quo took second place in the annual chart, with X Factor runners-up JLS coming in third.

Irish band Westlife and veteran rocker Rod Stewart completed the top five.

Andre said: "Nothing beats performing live. Performing in front of thousands of fans is my ultimate experience so I'm delighted to get this recognition from PRS for Music."

The singer's career spans almost two decades, after first releasing an album in his native Australia in 1993.

He had his first hit in the UK in 1995 with Mysterious Girl which reached number two in chart but its re-release following his 2004 appearance on ITV1's I'm A Celebrity saw it reach the top spot.

London rapper Example notched up the most performances at smaller concert venues, followed by Ellie Goulding and Tinie Tempah.
