ITV's creaking Brits award deal looks set to deliver another head-scratchingly bad experience in the new year. They'd already signed up Chris Evans to host again (apparently they see Evans as "a safer pair of hands", which surely is the last thing you'd want him to be?) and now, adding to the sense that it's some sort of festival of "no, they're just as good as they were years ago", Madonna is being lined up to entertain the masses.

But at least the prizes themselves will be exciting, eh, as, erm, Robbie Williams goes head-to-head with James Blunt for best male singer. Ooh, that's a battle we can't wait for.
