Muse took top spot with The Resistance, pushing wartime singer Dame Vera Lynn into second.
Pete, 36, didn’t think his album would beat Muse’s third offering.
‘I’m competing with the big boys and I think it’s fantastic that I’m even, at this stage, close to them,’ he told Now magazine in a recent interview.
‘To be honest, I think Muse is gonna take [the top spot] no matter what, I always thought that anyway.’
Congratulations Pete, we love you!
