TV addix will have noticed that last Friday was a bumper evening for pop fans, with over six hours of the sticky stuff to wade through.

Frankie are about raw lust, about sex, reproduction, making it and finding a mate. Kids of 12–16 understand it because theyve all got making it on their minds.” He wasnt talking about toast either.

Newsnight then previewed Frankies single ‘Two Tribes (out next week) and showed some of that naughty ‘Relax video. So who needs Jools Holland when youve got John Tusa?
