I did drill a 10mm hole, but the plug won't fit, it's slightly too small, every time I've tried to hammer it in, it's buckled and broken

You want to push it in as much as you can by hand first then lightly tap in with a hammer. You can use your 10mm bit to round the hole out a little bit bigger if you need but you want the plug to be snug.

Thanks I'll give it a go!

Just over round the hole sightly by rotating the drill in a circle as you drill. Make sure to get the dust out too, use a vacuum cleaner nozzle.

You could also use a screwdriver (preferably a square or Roberson) to sit inside the anchor and tap the driver with the hammer. A little easier to knock it in if you're in a weird spot or lack hand eye coordination.
