TV presenter Graham Norton has been named the worst-dressed man in Britain.

The Channel 4 chat show host, noted for his outlandish outfits, was branded a clothing catastrophe by GQ magazine.

He beat Prime Minister Tony Blair into second place in the poll, which was compiled from the views of 500 style experts, writers and celebrities.

"It seems there's nothing he would not wear," said Channel 4 News presenter Jon Snow, one of the judges.

Norton, who presents the chat show V Graham Norton five times a week, has become known for his range of colourful handmade suits.

This is not the first time Norton has featured in the worst-dressed ranking in GQ. Last year he came fifth.

The winner then was Jonathan Ross, who has gone down to number three in this year's poll.

England football captain David Beckham is again top of the best-dressed list.

The Manchester United midfielder was described by GQ editor Dylan Jones as "a genuine class warrior - only his battleground is Bond Street".

Actor Jude Law has retained his position at number two in the best dressed list while music legend David Bowie has moved from last year's 33 to this year's third position.

Kylie Minogue's former boyfriend James Gooding is rated the UK's 12th best-dressed man while the Prince of Wales is placed at number 15.

Names who have fallen from the list include Ewan McGregor, Vinnie Jones and Beckham's son Brooklyn.
