Frank Skinner: The Brits isn't as good as it was

Frank Skinner wasn't impressed with the Brits:

"The Brits used to be this massively controversial thing with people taking trousers down and someone throwing water over John Prescott," he told That Sunday Night Show. "It has gone really downhill now."
Yes, it used to be massively controversial. When exactly did the rot set in?

Some might say 2002 was a key point in the turning of the event into a prepackaged drudgeathon. That year Dido won prizes; Sting performed and Travis was lauded. And who was presenting the show that night?

Erm... that would be the same Frank Skinner.

The 2002 Brits were quite controversial, in that Skinner made such a mess of presenting them it nearly ended his TV career, most notably greeting Sophie Ellis-Bextor with "why the wide face?", which doesn't even work on its own in an unadapted form.
