'Fat' jibe leaves band feeling less than magic

Mama and Poppa Cass shouldn't be so touchy. Step away from the Twinkies!

"LONDON (Reuters) - One of the country's most highly-rated new pop bands stormed out of their debut performance on 'Top of the Pops' after a presenter allegedly described them as 'fat'.

The Magic Numbers, made up of two pairs of siblings, refused to perform their new single on Sunday's show after taking offence at remarks made by guest host Richard Bacon.

Newspapers reported that in rehearsals Bacon introduced the band by saying: 'What do you get when you put two brothers and sisters in a band? A big fat melting pot of talent.'"
