  Pop stars' tones are top of flops
Updated 16 March 2004, 17.59
Michelle McManus
Newsround has been asking pop stars which mobile ringtones they have and, we have to say, what a boring lot!

Most had their phones' standard tones - hang your heads in shame Kelly Osbourne, Lemar and Scissor Sisters.

The only star we asked who had a pop ring tone was Jamelia who has a Dizzee Rascal tune on her phone.

But when we told Pop Idol Michelle McManus that Peter Andre's Insania was available as a ringtone she asked us to stop the interview while she got it!

Lemar
Lemar hangs his head in shame!

Chris out of Phixx didn't even know what his own ring tone was, but fellow band member Pete was able to tell him it was the classical theme music to a 1960s sci-fi film.

What a geek!

We thought Lord of the Rings star Billy Boyd would give a more interesting answer than our pop star interviewees but his was even worse.

He said he had it set to the sound of a normal telephone ring.

Yawn!
