The Streets Choose Bathroom Over Brits Win

THE STREETS star MIKE SKINNER missed out on collecting his BRIT AWARD last night (09FEB05) despite attending the ceremony - he was having a bathroom break.

The English rapper, who performed his hit DRY YOUR EYES at the star-studded ceremony at London's Earls Court 2 venue, was named Best British Male Solo Artist.

As the crowd waited for Skinner to appear, his bandmate arrived on stage alone and apologised, saying, "Unfortunately, I've lost my partner in crime.

"Last time I saw him he was in the toilets. I hope he's ok. Maybe he's eaten something nasty."

Skinner's upset stomach could have been due to the "authentic" kebabs and supermarket own brand crisps (potato chips) he had eaten in his dressing room before the show.
