WET WET WET star Marti Pellow has hit out at modern bands who refuse to perform live.

The LOVE IS ALL AROUND ME singer claims the current trend of TV talent shows has created an environment where there are too many acts with too little talent.

He says, "What freaks me out is when I watch the telly and the presenter says they're going to be playing live.

"It's like, 'What's the biggie? That's what they are supposed to be doing.' It's their job. That has been lost."
