URE BACK: After his 1985 visit with band Aid, Midge Ure had said he'd never be able to face a return trip to Ethiopia. However, Save The Children persuaded him to take a second look. He found a mixed picture - although the horrors of the 80s have passed, the country is still teetering on the edge of another major crisis. It is, of course, doubly timely for Midge to make his return, as Blair and Geldof are meeting with the Ethiopian Prime Minister this week, and Midge is currently on a signing tour for his new autobiography.

He turned up on BBC Breakfast this morning and suggested that only he, George Michael and Robbie Williams had been able to break out of the boyband cookiecutter to do something different.
