Annie Lennox has been named the most played Scottish act of the century.

The former Eurythmics star fought off competition from Texas frontwoman Sharleen Spiteri, who came second in the rundown based on data obtained by officials at music licensing company Ppl.

Lennox says, "I'm astonished to learn that I'm the most played Scottish musical artist of the century. If I'd had any idea that this would be the case when I headed for London over 40 years ago, it might have smoothed over some of the rougher patches of the journey!

"I am hugely proud of my roots and the country's impressive musical legacy, so it is a huge honour for me to be recognised, and feel that I have in some way been part of that contribution! My congratulations go to all my fellow countrymen and women featured."

KT Tunstall is in third place, while Dire Straits star Mark Knopfler, who was born in Scotland, is at four and pop group Wet Wet Wet round out the top five.

Calvin Harris, Paolo Nutini, The Fratellis, Franz Ferdinand and Primal Scream make up the rest of the top 10.
