Actor and singer John Barrowman's song I Made it Through the Rain is the highest new entry in the UK's official Radio 1 Top 40 charts, entering at number 14.

Speaking on Fern and Reggie's Chart Show yesterday, Barrowman said:
It's kind of like a phenomenon. The album was released in November of last year, and you think, okay, it's had its life, and if it sells something beyond that you're really chuffed and happy and pleased, but you do not expect something like this to happen, for a song to go into the chart!

The song has been championed by BBC Radio 1 DJ Chris Moyles through his Radio 1 Breakfast Show and Twitter posts. Moyles has previously influenced chart entries, with a promotion back in the 2007 New Year to use new download rules to get former Doctor Who companion Billie Piper's song Honey to the Bee into the charts - famously overshadowing a similar attempt by fans aiming to enter Doctor Who music composer Murray Gold's song Love Don't Roam.
