Once symbolic of the eclecticism present in the UK music market – the meeting point, as it were, of Jarvis Cocker's buttocks and Michael Jackson's "Earth Song" – the Brit Awards these days tend to be dominated by mainstream pop-rockers and graduates of the Brit stage school.

I can't think of a single excuse or defence for switching on the television on Tuesday evening to watch Claire Sweeney eat until she was fat. I was already caught between a great novel, series two of The Wire (I'm a dedicated late adopter) and an early night.

So, they're just like us. We obsess about our appearance and feel inadequate at work, but research proves men feel the same. Being in the company of women only heightens these male anxieties, and even a night out with their mates doesn't help. One in four men think they're useless at sex, blaming movies such as Sex and the City for increasing female expectations to unrealistic levels.

Cheryl Cole will replace Sharon Osbourne as a judge on The X Factor, ITV said today.
The Girls Aloud star had been tipped as favourite to join Simon Cowell, Louis Walsh and Dannii Minogue on the judging panel since Osbourne's dramatic exit last week.
Cole, 24, who was catapulted to fame on reality TV show Popstars: The Rivals, said it was "scary" to be joining the ITV1 show.
Osbourne, 55, who announced she was quitting on Friday, has denied she walked out because TV bosses would not meet her pay demands and over conflict with Minogue.
She had backed Cole as her favourite to take over her role, one of the biggest on TV.
