Robbie Williams named 'Q Idol'

Robbie Williams was declared a pop idol at the Q Awards with other winners including Ellie Goulding, Pet Shop Boys and Jake Bugg.

Stars including Tinie Tempah, Ronnie Wood and Strictly Come Dancing's Sophie Ellis-Bextor handed out gongs at the ceremony at the Grosvenor Hotel in central London.

The show, hosted by pub landlord star Al Murray, saw Williams named a Q Idol, Biffy Clyro pick up Best Album for Opposites and Goulding win Best Solo Artist.

Foals beat Arctic Monkeys to the title of Best Live Act, but the Sheffield band won Best Track for Do I Wanna Know?

Veteran duo Pet Shop Boys were recognised for their Outstanding Contribution To Music, while Vampire Weekend were named Best Act in the World and Suede were given the Q Icon award.

Punk poet John Cooper Clarke was named Poet Laureate by the music magazine.

Its senior editor Matt Mason said: "It's been a privilege to celebrate another brilliant year for music.

"We keep being told that these are tough times for the industry, but the evidence here suggests the opposite. The artists honoured today reflect the variety and richness of the current musical landscape.

"From Jake Bugg to John Cooper Clarke, they give us everything we ask for from rock and pop stars: outstanding, inventive music delivered with absorbing attitude and character.

"We're particularly delighted to salute evergreen artists such as Robbie, the Pet Shop Boys and Suede, who've all made excellent new music over the last 12 months.

"They're brilliant reminders of the enduring power of the great British pop act - anyone who saw Suede's thrilling Q Awards show at the Garage last week will agree with that."
