Now, you know that round here James Blunt is about as popular as a bluetongued midge on a cattle ranch, but we feel we have to defend him against - yes - Victoria Newton's claim:
POP heart-throb JAMES BLUNT tried to chat up US TV host ELLEN DEGENERES on her show - even though she is gay.
Ha! Blunt must be, like, a blundering dimwit, right?
He replied: “I’ll give you my phone number afterwards.”
He added: “I am actually very effeminate.”
Clearly, Blunt was making a joke. It might not have been a great joke, but what it certainly wasn't was a blunder.
