Irish rocker BOB GELDOF shocked British radio listeners last night (09FEB05) when he launched into a swearing tirade about pop beauty GWEN STEFANI.

The former Boomtown Rats picked up an Outstanding Contribution to Music accolade at the Brit Awards in London, while No Doubt frontwoman Stefani was named International Female Solo Artist.

During a backstage interview with BBC RADIO 1 while waiting for a soundcheck, bored Geldof moaned, "People like Gwen Stefani take f**king ages.

"I'm going to sound sh*t because I've got flu."
