McFly do a really, really ropey version of their charity single - we can't help but feel their presence on Saturday's bill might have made sense, attracting a whole different audience, and helping the viewing figures over the fifty per cent mark - here, though, they do little more than bring an air of a local radio station promotion to an event that needs little help to give that impression.
