Kaiser Chiefs rocker Simon Rix has hit out at Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, accusing him of hogging the limelight at the Brit Awards.

The bassist accuses Martin of having an inflated ego and failing to share the band's success - Coldplay picked up the Best Single and Best Album gongs - with other group members.

Rix says, "I hate what Chris did at the Brits.

"He said he was going to let the drummer speak and then he took over the mic completely. He's out of order."
